This playground is in a small village called Nisf Jbeil close to Nablus and is part of the village’s first kindergarten! The kindergarten will be run by a local fair trade women’s cooperative. In the afternoons and weekends, when the kindergarten is closed, all the children of the village can come to climb, slide, and swing.

The playground is part of MECA’s work with Riwaq Center for Architectural Conservation and their “50 Villages Project” to restore historic buildings and revitalize public spaces in Palestine. In 2013, we helped Riwaq build three new playgrounds serving children in West Bank villages.
