Description

Playing to Live! current focus is in:

Playing to Live, as of October 2014, has pledged to utilize their resources towards the effort to provide programming to children who have been affected by Ebola in West Africa. The environments, in which have been targeted by Liberian officials and Playing to Live!’s directors as the highest need, are the interim care centers (ICCs) and communities that house Ebola survivors and children who have been highly stigmatized. Playing to Live has begun hiring female Ebola survivors to act as the implementors of our programming, so that we are able to provide employment and support towards the healing and growth the community as a whole. Playing to Live! will continue to use research techniques and their clinical team to work towards the goals of cultural relevance and empowerment, efficient and concise reporting and evaluation, publication and advocacy, and continued growth and development to follow the Ebola crisis and recovery.
