The Playground Project

They say play is the work of children—and it’s true! Play is how children learn about the world, themselves and each other. Having fun is an important part of child development and succeeding in life, playing with friends and enjoying the care-free days of childhood. It’s as much a part of healthy development as eating vegetables, reading books together and getting a good night’s sleep.


Playtime outside allows the children to act spontaneously and keeps the magic and wonder of childhood alive.

The benefits are:
Develop motor skills.
Develops thinking and creative problem-solving skills.
Teaches patience, sharing, teamwork and more.
Helps build confidence as the children discover and overcome challenges.
Builds muscle and provides physical exercise.
Brings joy and creates happy memories.

Do you remember your days swinging and climbing when you were a kid?

Our new campaign, the Playground Project is all about fun, fun, fun!

Sadly, Neve Hanna’s playground of 40 years had to be demolished due to safety measures. Our children now need a new safe fun playground.

We dream of wooden installations made to last decades, environmentally friendly and challenging for the children. Places where they can play, climb, hide and seek, explore and learn, and of course have a lot of fun in a safe surrounding. 

Our goal is to raise the necessary funds needed to build a safe, wonderful new playground for the children to enjoy at Neve Hanna and a playground at their Rosh Pina vacation home. With your help, we can do it! 


Please partner with American Friends of Neve Hanna (AFNH) to help make a difference in the lives of our children.  Let us know if you are interested in sponsoring the Playground Project. We can be reached at our office, info@afnevehanna.org or 347-836-8118.
