A majority of the tyres used in the projects are bought from scrap dealers and around 10% comes from tyre companies.Anthill?s aim is to provide playgrounds for children in schools, slums, factories, corporate parks, and even on roofs
- Anthill Creations, founded by Nancy Charaya and Pooja Rai, and supported by Vishesh Gupta, Souradeep Paul and Nupur Agarwal, is a social startup that uses old tyres from cars, trucks and tractors to create innovative, low-cost playgrounds.
- Michelin and Apollo have supported us by donating used tyres.
- The tyres are used to create playground items that are tactile and also generate sound, which are the two senses that excite visually impaired children.
