PoH #17: Tokyo International School


Playground of Hope #17

2-13-6 Minami Azabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo

Installation date: August 21st, 2013

Sponsor: Tokyo International School 

Imagine how pleasantly surprised we were when one of our biggest sponsors asked us to build one our play sets at their brand new school – what an honor!

Although Minato-ku is very far away and different from the Tohoku communities we normally serve, they do share an important and admirable attribute – a fantastic sense of community. TIS parents helped us unload all the parts from the truck on build day, TIS students, dads and moms even helped out with building the play set. But what made this build very special was the fact that the proceeds from the sale helped us fund PoH’s core activities…and the play set looks great on the new school grounds, a true win-win situation! Another great build with great people and fantastic sense of community.
