Espacios para Jugar Afuera

Tegucigalpa se ha convertido en una ciudad peligrosa donde hay pocas oportunidades de jugar al aire libre en comunidad. Considerando que estudios han comprobado que la violencia se reduce cuando hay espacios verdes, este proyecto creara un movimiento de voluntarios dedicados a mejorar las areas verdes y de recreacion infantil publicas en los principales parques de Tegucigalpa. Otras actividades del proyecto incluyen la organizacion de dias de juego en los parques y cerrar calles para que los ninos anden en bicicleta. El proyecto se enfocara en logros significativos pero alcanzables a corto plazo para demostrarle a los participantes que el cambio si es posible y asi incentivarlos a que continuen siendo ciudadanos comprometidos.  Un criterio de seleccion de las actividades es que los voluntarios sean beneficiarios al mismo tiempo. El exito del proyecto estara en que las familias capitalinas donen su tiempo y dinero para mejorar su propio entorno y bienestar.
