Jack MacDonald I'm Jack MacDonald, I am 19 years old and I come from the lovely county of Kent! I attend Canterbury Christ Church University as a fresher in my first year and even though I haven't been there long I have comfortably settled in and met some really amazing people! I am currently studying 'Special Educational Needs and Inclusion Studies' as I have aspirations of working with individuals with additional needs or disabilities.

I wouldn't say I am particularly well-travelled, however, this project gives me the opportunity to see something completely out of my normal routine in England, and I might even get a cheeky sun tan ;)

Travelling to a foreign country as a volunteer is something that I have always wanted to do, and now that I have this opportunity I am going to put my heart and soul into it. I know that where I live, something like a play park can be easily taken advantage of and even vandalised, so it makes me extremely happy knowing that the playground that will be made in Uganda will stand the test of time.
