Lisa-Marie Boyd Hi!
Ive signed up with East African Playground to raise £1000 to give children their childhood through play. Play has an incredible benefit on a child's development and i believe that every child should have the opportunity to have their own space to express themselves and make sense of the world.

East African Playgrounds build playgrounds across Uganda - including refugee camps - helping to empower some of the world's most disadvantaged children.

'What a difference your donation makes':
- £5.11 gives one child their childhood back through access to a safe, fun and child-focused playground.
- £21.83 educates a teacher on the importance of including play in education and creates a peer network for them to share their learning in.
- £73.80 equips a former street child with everything they need to learn the basics of welding, from their own set of welding boots to through to ear defenders and glasses.
- £131 teaches a community of care-givers and educators about the importance of play at home and school, as well as to maintain their playground.
- £197.61 trains a former street child for a month, helping them to become a qualified builder or welder through the East African Playgrounds apprenticeship scheme.

This summer I will be joining a team of paid Ugandan professionals and other volunteers to help build a playground in Uganda. Please help me reach my fundraising target by giving whatever you can - any donation will make a difference. Lisa-Marie Boyd
