KaziPlay

The KaziPlay sub-project aims to complement the KaziBantu program by enhancing playground facilities and toilet ablution facilities at two disadvantaged South African quintile 3 schools in the Northern Area of Port Elizabeth. The primary target group of the intervention are learners from grades 1 to 6.

In detail, the KaziPlay project entails:

(1) The construction of sports facilities at two selected schools,

    • based upon the needs and requirements of the respective school;
    • based upon the passport-to-health project (https://passport2health.mandela.ac.za/);
    • integrating elements that promote basic motor competencies (http://www.mobak.info); and
    • based on designs that can be reused at other schools from low-and-middle-income settings.

     

(2) Renovations of the toilet ablution facilities at the two selected schools,

    • based upon the needs and requirements of the respective schools; and
    • based on designs that can be reused at other schools from low-and-middle-income settings.

(3) A tool-kit containing construction sketches and details for each of the implemented solutions that can assist KaziBantu to scale up the work to other schools from low-and-middle-income settings.

The implemented infrastructure will meet the common safety and quality standards for sports and toilet facilities and is developed by two South African architects.
