UNICEF and Disney are partnering together on an innovative project that brings portable playgrounds to schools and child centers in Haiti and Bangladesh. Supported by funding from Disney, UNICEF’s @Play initiative is fostering imagination and creativity, and promoting play and learning for children in countries affected by disaster and emergencies. The project uses Imagination Playground units, furthering its mission of bringing play to communities in need and transforming lives through play. Listen to UNICEF’s podcast to hear more about the project’s inspiration and the importance of learning through play.
