ellie curtis I have signed up to take part in The Gorilla Trek with the East African Playgrounds to raise quite simply as much money as I can, to give children their childhood through play. Play is an extremely underrated but essential part of a child's life that as part of 1st world countries, we perhaps overlook. Play gives children the chance to develop themselves through building building physical, emotional, social and cognitive skills, and East Africa Playgrounds recognises the importance of this and implements their play programmes in Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres, primary schools, hospitals and refugee settlements across Uganda.

To fundraise for this i will be spending 3 weeks in Uganda, taking on all the terrain they have to offer, before building the actual playground myself (of course with help from a team of trained Ugandan builders and welders!).
Please donate what you can, and help give these children the childhood they so deserve. ellie curtis
