Heya! I signed up for the East African Playground’s (EAP) Gorilla trek! My aim is to raise £2K to help gift a playground to a small rural school in Uganda.

The trip involves living and working with a local community to build a playground for a school as well as going on a Uganda trek to find the last remaining Silverback Gorillas!

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.

A breakdown of the costs (found at https://www.eastafricanplaygrounds.org/gorilla-trek-details) include:
- Project costs (£600) – which covers everything during my stay at Uganda
- Gorilla Permit (£300) – which give me the opportunity to see the gorillas and goes to protecting them in their habitat
- Donations to EAP (£1,100) – helps the charity improve the lives of so many people

Please help me step out of my comfort zone and try to better the lives of the next Ugandan generation!
