Construction season is on again for Gamechangers. Micro-grant recipients are nearing completion of two small sports facilities in rural India and China. In Jharkhand, India, Yuwa is using football to promote health, education and improved livelihoods among the hardest to reach, most at-risk group in the community – girls.
In China, villagers from Gan Hai Zi are working with Habitat for Humanity to construct an outdoor sport and community center – a new hub to socialize, entertain, recreate and build up those endorphins we all know and love.
In affiliated news, remember the design-build team from San Pedro Apóstol? They, with Architect Juan Santibañez, and the women of San Juan Mixtepec, have completed the first of 20 homes built with indigenous and local materials. Nice!
GAMECHANGERS is a campaign to support the design and construction of innovative sports facilities for organizations that, through sport, spur social change in their communities.
