At Beit Issie Shapiro I lead the inclusive and accessible playgrounds program, guiding and giving consultation to municipalities based on our "Friendship Park" model. “Friendship Park” is Israel’s first accessible and inclusive playground, which provides children with various types of abilities with an equal opportunity for recreation and fun. The uniqueness of our model is the integration of physical accessibility (the design and special facilities are adapted for children and adults with all ranges of ability) and structured social accessibility (including initiated educational and social activities, events and community festivals) to raise awareness and teach children how to play together.
