Iraq: Kalar - Showing Youth the Fun Side of Green
In Kalar, GCC Youth implemented an athletic community service project, which served to revitalize one of the city’s playgrounds. The Youth supplied a water pump for watering the grass, hoses, wastebaskets, and materials to repair destroyed parts of the fences. They worked together with local youth athletes (who frequently used the grounds) to maintain the fields. Participants were divided into groups and given instruction on how to properly water the grass and other grounds keeping tasks. The project also included creating awareness amongst the athletes about the necessity to keep things well maintained so that the playground can be around for everyone to enjoy for a long time to come.
