PoKai Peng Hello I am PoKai, one of the new volunteers and fundraisers in University of Birmingham. Whether you have known me for a long time or we just met, I have an exciting news to tell you, and that is that I will be taking part in the Gorilla Trek project in June 2018. The project itself is a three week event in Uganda where I will be building a playground for the kids in the community.

I believe that playing is one of the most important elements for children to grow happily and have a meaningful life. Being able to play unlocks so much more potential within a child than just sitting in a classroom. However, I understand that the harsh weather and the lack of resources in Uganda might lower the possibility for the kids to obtain this crucial element. That's why I want to help them construct a lovely playground and see them crack their smiles despite living in one of the most disadvantaged places in the world.

However, to reach this optimal objective, I need your help!
I have a fundraising target of £2000 before going to Uganda, and I believe that with this amount of money, more children could live a better life under improved conditions and fewer of them would die of starvation and diseases. Your one small donation would be one healthy meal for them.

This is what we could do with your donation:
£5: Making 10 stuffed puppet for the children
£10: Painting tires and building them up
£20: Engaging the kids in a fun group activity
£50: Building a slide and a seesaw for the children
£100: Two-day play-based teaching
£200: Building a tree house for the community

Please give me your slightest help, it would be greatly appreciated! I have also created an instagram account recording every step I take while taking part in this amazing one-year event. Follow me: fundraiserpokai PoKai Peng
