Kids playing tug of war
- Julio Etchart
NOVIB, a Dutch relief organization which cooperates with UNESCO and UNICEF, distributed a photo book on kids playing games.
Playing games is an activity of great importance for the development of kids. NOVIB knows that many kids in countries in warfare or in very poor conditions do not have the opportunity to go to a swimming pool or go to a tennis court. Still kids find ways to improvise their toys with simple means and play games.
The cover page of the book with the title Toys shows kids playing tug of war even without a rope.
The photo of kids playing in Maranhao, Brazil was taken by Julio Etchart (Uruguay)
