Coly Begum Hi!
I've signed up to the Gorilla Trek with the charity, East African Playgrounds to raise £2,100 to help bring the gift of play to the children of Uganda.

I will be going to Uganda on a gorilla trek to see the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorillas as well as living and working within 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. Child development and psychology studies have proven that a critical factor in early childhood development is play.Through play, children develop motor skills,social skills, problem solving and more.It is an ESSENTIAL part of a child's physical and mental health.
The best thing about this charity is the help it provides for refugees.In October 2016, East African Playgrounds has installed 15 playgrounds in 3 refugee settlements in the West Nile region of Uganda, working with UNICEF and Plan International, to provide integrated ECD services and child friendly spaces to host and refugee communities. The project benefitted 11,332 children, providing them with a safe place to play.

By donating just £10 YOU are helping to build a brand new playground for an entire community.
