Ben Cheng Joining volunteering trips is something I've always enjoyed doing and there is no better time to go again than the last ever summer before work starts! In June 2020, I will be going to Uganda with East African Playgrounds for a volunteering project to help build a playground for a school, live within a local community and explore the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorillas!

East African Playgrounds has built over 300 playgrounds across Uganda in schools, community centres are refugee settlements. These playgrounds are not only a vital space to have fun, make friends and play together but also they are also essential for children's learning, wellbeing and healthy brain development, which will vastly benefit them beyond their childhood years.

I will be joining various fundraising activities throughout the year, including a half marathon, charity sports tournaments, challenges set by you, and more!

I would appreciate donations of any amount! This is what a difference your donation makes for this wonderful cause:
£5.11 can give one child their childhood back through access to a safe, fun and child-focussed playground.
£21.83 can educate a teacher on the importance of including play in education and creates a peer network for them to share their learning in.
£73.80 can equip a street connected young person with everything they need to learn the basics of welding, from their own set of work boots through to ear defenders and glasses.
£131 can teach a community of caregivers and educators about the importance of play at home and school, as well as how to maintain their playground.
£197.61 can train a street connected young person for a month to become a qualified builder or welder through our apprenticeship scheme.

Thank you! :)
