Amy Theaker This summer, I'll be joining a team of paid Ugandan professionals and other volunteers to help build a playground in Uganda. Please help me reach my fundraising target by giving whatever you can-any donation will mean a lot.

I've signed up with the charity East African Playgrounds to raise £800 to give children their childhood through play. Play has an incredible benefit on a child's development; I believe every child should have this opportunity as it builds physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills, whilst giving them the space in which to make sense of all the world and exercise freedom of thought. East African Playgrounds builds playgrounds all over Uganda-including refugee camps-helping to empower some of the world's most disadvantaged children.
