【Project Background & Introduction】

The "Joint-U Playground Builder Project" has been launched by the University & College YMCA Department since 2021, which aims to recruit passionate students from different universities to organise activities for children in Hong Kong, to build playground in developing countries and to promote children's play right both locally and globally. 

Since 2016, the University & College YMCA Department has led more than 100 university students to the Philippines, Cambodia, Mongolia and Chiang Mai to build 6 playgrounds respectively, serving more than 10,000 children. Apart from overseas playground construction, our Department has initiated a local project named “Handmade Playground” since 2018, which aims to address the problem of “lack of play” and internet addiction among children in Hong Kong, by upcycling different eco-friendly materials into therapeutic playground facilities. The project has brought immense impact to children and it was well recognised by the Agency For Volunteer Service in 2020. 

We are now recruiting a new batch of students with passion working on this project! Sign Up Now!
