Freya Hunt I have signed up with the charity East African Playgrounds to raise £800 to help bring the gift of play to some of the world's most disadvantaged children. I will be building a playground to transform a community school with a team of trained Ugandan builders and welders. As well as, assisting on a creative play programme to inspire children at a school to learn, explore and develop themselves.
Play has an incredible benefit on a child's development; I believe every child should have the opportunity to have a stimulating environment in which to learn and develop their physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills, to make sense of the world and exercise freedom of thought.

Examples of what you can fund with a donation are…
£10 – builds a toy giraffe for the children of a community to play with.
£15 – builds a motorbike out of tires, allowing kids to engage their creativity in role play scenarios.
£20 – funds safety equipment for a disadvantaged young adult, helping them to be safe as they start meaningful employment with East African Playgrounds.
£50 – builds a table with space for board games such as checkers or snakes and ladders!

This summer, I will be spending four weeks in Uganda alongside Ugandan professionals and other volunteers to help build a playground. Please help me reach my fundraising target by giving whatever you can – any donation will mean a lot.
