Unverified User Where would we be without the magic of play, fun and happiness?

I have signed up to East African Playgrounds Gorilla Trek to help raise funds and build a playground in Uganda this summer. East African Playgrounds have already built over 300 playgrounds across Uganda in schools, community centres are refugee settlements. Not only do playgrounds help to release power endorphins, useful for any child's mental health; but they have also been proven to increase school attendance, reduce antisocial behaviour and increase aspirations in young people.

Alongside building playgrounds, East African Playgrounds also run educational play programmes which increase the use of play-based teaching which results in a deeper, more connected learning outcome. Additionally, as part of the construction of the playgrounds, EAP provides welding apprenticeship programmes for street connected young people, providing them with the skills, knowledges and experience to create a prosperous future for themselves.

What a difference your donation makes:
Just £5.11 can give one child their access to a safe, fun and child-focussed playground.
£21.83 can educate a teacher on the importance of play-based education and creates a peer network for them to share their learning in.
£73.80 can equip a street connected young person with everything they need to learn the basics of welding, from their own set of work boots through to ear defenders and glasses.
£131 can teach a community of caregivers and educators about the importance of play at home and school, as well as how to maintain their playground.
£197.61 can train a street connected young person for a month to become a qualified builder or welder through EAP's apprenticeship scheme.
