PoH #9: Ohisama Daycare

Playground of Hope #9

Kids Room Ohisama Daycare
Miyagi-ken, 25-12 Myogazawa Kesennuma

Installation date: January 25, 2013

Sponsor: Parents & Teachers Association of Tokyo International School

The Kid’s Room Ohisama school was built to replace a daycare center destroyed in the 3/11 tsunami. We first met the principle of the school during our Playground of Hope #3 installation in Kesennuma. We learned about their wonderful new school built entirely from a single donation from a local construction company. Great story, but their fantastic new school had no play equipment…enter the Playground of Hope!

Thanks once again to a generous donation from our friends at the Parents & Teachers Association of TIS we were able to install our Design 1A play set, in the winter of 2013. It was a cold installation but the warmth of the children, their teachers and parents kept are hearts as warm and our bellies full – Kesennuma has amazing fresh seafood!
