Sinead Price 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.

I will be going to Uganda to find the last remaining Silver back Mountain Gorilla's 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. East African Playgrounds is a charity that helps to empower and support some of the most disadvantaged children in Uganda, by allowing them the freedom to learn and to explore their own potential.
East African Playgrounds also provide an apprenticeship scheme helping to train and employ local people providing them with a vocational skill to better their future.

Of the £2000 I raise £300 pounds will go to the Uganda Wildlife Authority to help the conservation efforts of the Gorillas I will be visiting. £600 will go on project costs of food, accommodation and travel, most of which will go to the non-project trek company who support the communities we will trek through. The remaining £1,100 will go directly to East African Playgrounds to fund their incredible work.

(I am also fundraising for my flights, so any money that I raise over £2000 can be reimbursed to me by East African Playgrounds, upon request, up to the cost of my flight)
This is a cause that I am passionate about, and any donations to support my journey would be very much appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to view my page, and please share if you can!
