Katrine Perrie 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.
This June I am travelling to Uganda to participate in the ‘Gorilla trek’ volunteer programme. During the course of the three weeks I will see some of the world’s last wild silverback gorillas. I will then go on to transform an empty field into a playground for school children who would have previously had no access to an environment where they could play safely. I chose East African Playgrounds because I believe that every child should have a safe place to play in because when playing children not only forms friendships, but they are also able to develop physical, emotional and cognitive skills which set them up for the rest of their lives
