Playground for children in Haiti

I came to Haiti in 2010, right after the horrific earthquake, for a short period of time to help.
Here it is 7 years late andI am still here.  I have trained numerous workers on how to use proper construction techniques and the right tool for the right job.
Recently I built a small house in the mountains in a small community approximately 5,000 ft above sea level.  In this neighborhood there are approximately 23 small children, ages from 2 to 12 that have no play area or playground to help pass time.  
I feed them some Sundays and after they eat they love to swing on a porch swing I built.  
I was able to get a small piece of property donated for the playground and would like to buy a swing set, monkey bars, slide and maybe a few other items.  This playground equipment is manufactured locally by Haitians and would help support the comunity.
I know the children will use this playground everyday as they have little else to do.
I would like to have the project completed by October, 2017.
I will follow up with some pictures and a breakdown of expenses.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Jim
