Sharing to Learn. Wire car. 2010
This toy, made by children in Makuleke Village, South Africa, is evidence of how in impoverished areas children often become designers themselves, ingeniously producing their own playthings from the detritus of modern industry. The organization Sharing to Learn make cultural exchange possible between the Makuleke children and children in classrooms across the United States and around the world, allowing global peers to share their favorite books and participate in collaborative experiments such as gardening and making toys like this.
