Millie Farrington I am fundraising for East African Playgrounds because I believe every child has the right to a safe, stimulating and enriching childhood, and together our donations and my work on the ground can help to provide a lasting safe space for kids to express themselves and develop their interaction skills. Though primary needs such as clean water and access to food are the targets at the focus of most fundraising, it's easy to forget that secondary needs such as emotional development, social interaction and play are vital to the growth and wellbeing of children as they mature. Article 24 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that everyone without exception is entitled to play, rest and leisure. The harsh truth is that many of these children are not only deprived of the privileges we enjoy in the UK but also do not have a safe place to do what they do best, but with your support we can make that a reality. I will be travelling to Uganda in Summer 2018 and aim to raise £2000 before the project begins. I know sometimes it can feel as if you're being pestered left right and centre for money and it's hard to see any visual proof of where it is going, but your generosity really does make a difference and I will be experiencing and sharing first hand the positive impacts it can have on the lives of those who need it most. Any donations big or small are wholeheartedly appreciated, thank you for your kindness and support. Millie:) Millie Farrington
