I found out about Project H Design through a New York Times article, and was automatically impressed. This company is "a charitable organization that supports, creates, and delivers life-improving humanitarian product design solutions." In some of their projects, they have utilized common resources to become valuable and useful sources of entertainment and education. For example, they have used tires to set up playground grids that are used for both basic math skills and a fun, outdoor learning environment. Tires can be found just about anywhere-and are extremely abundant in developing countries that export rubber products. Search their website for other projects that they've completed or plan to implement, and see if you can help out!
