What if you grow up in a war zone with the continuous threat of a missile attack? Should parents keep their children indoors or even underground in a shelter for safety? ‘Safe Ground’ allows kids to play outside and lets them be as they are meant to be: safe, playful and feeling free. Modules of reinforced concrete offer a strong shelter and an adventurous playground at the same time. It’s a modular system of tubes with fun extra’s like climbing holds, slides, holes, a sand pit and race track. All the elements come at a very low cost, allowing ngo’s to easily invest in the mental and physical wellbeing of children in times of war.
