I have always been interested in working with and improving the lives of children and young people, and I was amazed and inspired by the work of East African Playgrounds. I have worked with various charities in the UK and helped make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged people, and I am really excited to have the opportunity to volunteer overseas! I understand how important it is for children to have the opportunity to play, as it improves cognitive development, social skills and general well-being. That's why I am so grateful that I am traveling to Uganda in June with East African Playgrounds to build a playground- I know it will make a real difference to the children!
