Bea Swallow I have signed up to East African Playgrounds volunteer project to help raise funds and build a playground in Uganda over the summer of 2020. East African Playgrounds has built over 300 playgrounds across Uganda in schools, community centres, and refugee settlements.

From gaining a new playground a teacher from Kawule Primary School explains how she is now able to use it as a learning resource.
"Before the playground was installed, I would struggle to teach topics, such as budgeting and money, due to lack of resources. But ever since the playground was installed, I have been using the play shop for the children to learn through role play, resulting in the children grasping the topic much faster and with deeper understanding."

Alongside building playgrounds East African Playgrounds also run educational play programmes which increase the use of play-based teaching, resulted in deeper more connected learning outcomes. And as part of the construction of the playgrounds EAP provides a welding apprenticeship programmes for street connected young people, providing them with the skills, knowledges and experiences to create a prosperous future for themselves.

What a difference your donation makes, just £5.11 can give an individual their childhood back, through access to a safe, fun and child-focussed playground.
