I have an opportunity in July to make effective time of my summer months whilst not at university and I am keen to do something that will benefit others.

In order for me to do so, I would really appreciate your support and generosity. The majority of my time in Uganda will be spent working within a team to help build a playground for underprivileged children.

These playgrounds are not only a vital space to have fun, make friends and play together, but also they have proven to increase school attendance and enrolment, reduced antisocial behaviour and increase the perceived importance of children having their childhoods.

Clearly the benefits of children attending school and receiving on-going education will give them a better start in life.

In addition, to the playground project part of the money raised will be used for a contribution to the protection of the endangered Silverback Gorillas and their surrounding habitat.

Having come from a fortunate background, I am passionate about helping others who are underprivileged. I am very excited about this opportunity and thank you for any donations in advance.
