Why Play?

Play is essential to optimal development of children and youth especially in the early years when children learn by playing. However, factors such as neighbourhood violence, war, child labour & exploitation have contributed to a reduction in safe play areas for children; meanwhile, poverty and increased economic hardship has resulted in recreational resources and activities being luxuries that are accessible to mostly upper and middle classes. Aloe & Ivy seeks to bridge this gap by ensuring underprivileged children are not maligned from the most cherished part of childhood which is play.
