Our Soul

We believe in the value of play, construction and imagination as vital parts of child’s education. Essentially, we are building something in our lives every day e.g. building relationships, products, services, confidence, capacity, etc., Translating the metaphor of building great sandcastles to lessons in our lives is what drives the soul of this organization.

Using basic elements of nature; sand and water and with simple tools and bare hands, the usage of physical labor becomes central to the process. Through play and imagination, we also hope to share inspiration, courage, perseverance and inventiveness along the way.

Don’t be indifferent! You can touch a life and make a difference to another human being. Do something today so that we can leave the world a better place than when we found it.

Come, join us and build a sandcastle with a kid.
