Katherine Dawes In July 2018, I will be travelling to Uganda to volunteer for East African Playgrounds. East African Playgrounds in a non-profit organisation whose aim is to give children their childhoods through play.
This exciting opportunity will therefore not only provide lifetime memories for myself, but also for the disadvantaged children in Jinja, Uganda.

During my four weeks in Uganda I will be taking part in a variety of activities such as; quad biking, kayaking along the River Nile, and going on a safari. In addition to these fun weekend activities, I will also be helping with the construction of a school playground and assisting with the running of a creative play programme for children between the ages of 5 and 15.

Through the work of East African Playgrounds almost 200 playgrounds have been built - benefiting almost 300,000 children. 45 Ugandan staff members have been permanently employed and 63 centres have received the fun Play Programme.

All donations, great or small, are greatly appreciated and will go directly towards projects in Uganda. Let's make a difference and give children in Uganda their childhoods!

Thank you,
Katherine Katherine Dawes
