Volunteer Coordinator - Rachel Finch

Rachel is the Volunteer Coordinator for the Uganda Volunteer Project. Her role includes recruiting and supporting volunteers in the UK with their fundraising and pre-departure advice. She also supports the volunteers throughout their whole time whilst on project in Uganda. Rachel has a long history with EAP having been a volunteer herself in 2012 and 2013 (when we warn our volunteers that working with East African Playgrounds can be addictive, we mean it). Before becoming Volunteer Coordinator in 2016 she completed a year on the Charityworks programme where she achieved a Leadership qualification and learnt a great deal about working in the charity sector. Rachel was thrilled to return to East African Playgrounds as a member of staff after her time away because of the impact she had seen the playgrounds have on the children, providing them with a space that is entirely theirs, to have fun, socialise with friends and learn whilst they are doing so.
