Carly Main Next summer I have decided to spend my time in Uganda volunteering. Most of you that know me, will know that this isn’t the first project I’ve been on. As my dad says “why can’t you just go to Spain?!”. However from previous experience, I know that spending my summer doing a project like this is one of the most rewarding this to do!!

So with that in mind, I've signed up to the Gorilla Trek with the charity, East African Playgrounds to raise £2,000 to help bring the gift of play to the children of Uganda.

Whilst in Uganda I will have the opportunity to complete a trek to find the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorilla's as well as living and wokring wihtin a local community to build a playgrounds for a school.

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. Meaning that something as simple as a playground, is so important and has a huge effect on a child’s development.

I want to give this gift to the children of Uganda, can you please help by donating towards my fundraising. Any donation no matter how small is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!
