This project is in line with Clarins’ belief that free play allows a child to explore according to his or her natural tendencies, and allows them to learn from one another and to interact with a wide range of age groups. It also provides many skills and attributes such as balance, agility, muscle strength, strategic thinking, and gross motor skills, which are very important in the overall physical and mental growth of a child.
In collaboration with Biji-Biji (an organization that aimed to minimize carbon footprint through the use of green technology, waste management methods and creative ways to reuse trash), this also aims to develop environmental friendly playground equipment for the Orang Asli children in the pre-school, as well as to bring out the creativity of Clarins staff in painting the playground equipment.
About 20 employees from Clarins Malaysia office spent a meaningful day painting the play equipment, which included tyre rockers, monkey bars, cylinders, and slides. It was a day that was physically challenging but an invaluable experience nonetheless.
