The Monitor Institute has just released a new case study focusing on KaBOOM!, an award-winning national nonprofit that helps build playgrounds in low-income communities, and advocates for children’s right to play.
Rather than taking a typical approach to scale, KaBOOM! put its model online, and made it available to anyone, free of charge. Through a suite of online tools—including social networking, online training, codified content, and a Google-map mashup—KaBOOM! has empowered more than 6,000 communities to self-organize and build local playgrounds (far more than the 1,700 it built directly in its first 15 years). In so doing, it has had far more impact and reach, for far less cost. We look forward to your comments and hope that it will stimulate some new ways of thinking that might help you in the work that you do.
