The Halabja Community Play Project (HCPP) is a UK-based charity that works to create a safe, creative and challenging play environment for that is child-centred, following the model of an adventure playground. The project is developing the first adventure playground in Iraq in the city of Halabja, a Kurdish town in the north east region of Iraq close to the Iranian border. The project is being developed on an area of land that has been donated by the local community.

Led by experienced playworkers from the UK who train and work with staff from the local area, the project activities include the construction of a play area in close collaboration with the children of Halabja, regular play sessions with children from a range of ages, and the training of local playworkers to continue the project, with the ultimate aim of the project being handed over to be run by the community and funded by the Halabja municipality.

The project was initiated in 2008 in response to the lack of suitable play areas for children in Halabja, who are not only under numerous pressures from balancing school with work and family responsibilities, but also suffer from the traumatic effects of war and on-going conflict. The project has been a registered charity in the UK since 2009.
