Business

 

The contribution of businesses and professional networks is vital for the existence of our programmes. You help us to empower the young people we work with, and to sustain the build and design process.

We collaborate both with individuals and professional networks worldwide, who provide the resources, experience and valued time to enable our programmes to be successfully implemented, and to make Dreams happen.

 

Here are two main ways for your business to get involved:

Businesses contribute skills and resources, as their volunteers get a unique opportunity to learn, build networks and contribute to the community 

1

Collaborate with us by investing in a design and build programme, where you provide funding for the play areas and volunteers. Volunteers are asked to support children (typically primary school-aged) in designing their play areas by facilitating STEM design workshops . The volunteers are able to develop their communication, problem-solving and project management skills through our programmes. There is also an opportunity for the business to develop a relationship with the schools.

2

Invest in building all or a part of a play area that has been creatively co-designed by children within a local school or community. Your employers can also volunteer time to painting and gardening within the play area.

I love the love plays engineering club because I learn how to be an engineer using sustainable methods
Greenfield E-Act Primary school child, aged 9

Love Plays really engaged children in our school, who ordinarily have a low career expectation.  This engaging workshop allowed the children to be part of a process helping children in another country.  Many children have not left the city they were born in so this was a fantastic opportunity for them to embrace their global citizenship.  What was even more amazing is that the children were able to pitch their ideas (for many this was daunting) to engineers and then see their plans be built.  This workshop allows children whatever their ability to engage in the practical nature of many of the subjects they are taught and really allow them to work out of their comfort zone.  I would highly recommend this project.
