Angelique Briers I've signed up to the Uganda Volunteer Project with the charity, East African Playgrounds to raise £800 to help bring the gift of play to the children of Uganda.

In August 2019 I will be travelling to rural Uganda to help build a playground for disadvantaged children who go to schools which lack facilities.
For 2 weeks, I will be living and volunteering within a local community to help transform a school by building an amazing new playground from start to finish with a team of trained builders and welders. As well as teaching the children through creative play sessions. A playground is a classroom in disguise, children don't know they are learning, they don't feel like they are learning, but really they are taking in the whole world whilst playing with their friends. I want to give this gift to the children of Uganda as every child deserves to enjoy their childhood and not to be forced to grow up too soon.

The money you donate will contribute in various ways:
£5.11 gives one child their childhood back through access to a safe, fun and child-focussed playground.
£21.83 educates a teacher on the importance of including play in education and creates a peer network for them to share their learning in.
£73.80 equips a former street child with everything they need to learn the basics of welding, to having their own set of work boots, ear defenders and glasses...the list goes on!

A breakdown of where the costs go can be found at https://www.eastafricanplaygrounds.org/volunteer-project-details

I want to give this gift to the children of Uganda, If you would like to donate can you please help by donating towards my fundraising.
By giving a little, you will help out a lot. Act as what you do makes a difference!!!
