40> Consult redesign Public school Izbet el Haggana, UNwomen Safe Cities project, Cairo

Commissioned by UNwomen Safe Cities project, I consulted Takween (office for integrated community development) to improve and re-design the schoolyard of the public school in Izbet el Haggana. Issues tackled: making use of the area, designing a schoolyard with low budget play elements, in which hundreds of children can play during their break, ensuring safe and challenging play areas for girls as well for boys without completely separating them? The schoolyard needed to include a large semi public footballfield, and had a minimal budget. We therefore have made included the banks surrounding the schoolyard to optimize the playable area.
