On April 4, 2014, the Checago Bright Foundation, Inc. in partnership with the Workingman Collective, LLC funded and built a playground in Wenneh Town, Kakata, Margibi County for children. Wenneh Town is one of the impoverished communities in Kakata, Margibi County, which has an estimated population of 3,850. The town has 2 public and 2 private schools. 47% of the population are children, 32%, women, and 2% men. Most of the residents in Wenneh Town live on substance farming and small businesses. The children in Wenneh Town do not have anywhere for recreation, especially a playground where they can play after school, on weekends, vacation or during holidays.
This playground will serve as an impetus or a driven force to bring the children together to talk to each other, and to share their differences as they are from different schools and communities throughout Kakata, Margibi County. Also, parents will not have problem locating their children when needed.
