I have signed up to volunteer to take part in building a playground for a school in rural Uganda. The aim of the trip is to build a safe and fun playing environment for young, disadvantaged children to enjoy, whist also running educational and interactive activities with the kids over the course of the week. Building the playground will improve the educational experience for the children at this school and provide them with with a safe place to enjoy. The programme is run by a non-profit organisation called East African Playgrounds.

A portion of the money will also go to the Ugandan Wildlife Authority, who focus on the conservation of Uganda's native wildlife, such as the silverback gorillas still native to the area.

I am hoping to raise £2000 to fund the trip, which lasts three weeks. All the money that is donated will go to non-profit organisations based in east Africa, which seek develop the area.

Any donation, no matter how big or small, will be going to a great cause and would be vastly appreciated by myself and the East African Playgrounds organisation.
