Evie Anderson 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 is something I feel very strongly about and will be doing lots of fundraising to get there! Every child should be able to play and enjoy their childhood, in a safe environment. In rural Uganda, this playground will be so appreciated for years to come, by hundreds and hundreds of children, which is why it is so important that we can do all we can to help, and make a change!

Furthermore, while building the playground we will be running creative play sessions with the children and really getting to know the community we are helping so much. Not an ounce of money raised will be wasted and will make a massive difference to this community in Uganda. Our group of volunteers will be living and working within the local community, and also getting to experience their culture. Understanding what day to day life is like for the community, will really make us realize how fortunate we are and what a difference we can make.

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. It helps develop physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills, all while giving these children the enjoyment they deserve.

I want to give this gift to the children of Uganda, but i can't do it alone; you can help massively by donating towards my fundraising.
