I believe that a childhood full of fun and laughter should be available to every child, so in 2018 I'm going to Uganda to build a playground for a local school!
I feel it is only important that children have a safe environment to play in because it is a basic part of growing up. All children should have equal opportunities and rights to play games with friends and not have to worry about being in danger. Playing only helps a child to develop and is a basic foundation to their childhood. So by contributing to building this playground, I feel I can make a difference and change their lives for the better.

Resources for children in schools are very limited due to lack of funding and a large young population.

It would be fantastic to be able to improve the lives of children, play is crucial to their development. A proportion of the money I raise will also go towards the conservation of Silverback Gorillas, which I will have the amazing opportunity to track and see in the wild.
I am going to Uganda in July 2018 to build playgrounds because I would like to improve the lives of children less fortunate than I
I would love to be able to get involved with this project. It will not only help the children but will also help me have a once in a life time experience and directly impact in vulnerable children's lives.
I believe that every child deserves an opportunity to play, be active and have fun with their friends in a safe and friendly environment, and therefore I am taking part in the Gorilla Trek during August 2018!
I am fundraising for a volunteer project in Uganda in which we build children's playgrounds and get the opportunity to trek around Uganda and see gorillas.
