Przemek Zdybel I've signed up to the Gorilla Trek with the charity, East African Playgrounds to
raise £2,000 to help bring the gift of play to the children of Uganda. Playing
has an incredible benefit on a child's development and I believe that every
child should have this opportunity. Playing builds physical, social, emotional
and cognitive skills while also giving them a space in which to make sense of
the world and exercise the freedom of thought.

What 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 playing 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 work boots through to ear defenders
ad glasses

£131 teaches 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 trains a former street child for a month, helping them to become a
qualified builder or welder through our apprenticeship scheme.

This summer I will spend three weeks in Uganda - taking on every kind of
terrain the world offers before volunteering o a playground myself. Of the
£2,000 I will raise:

£300 will go to the Uganda Wildlife Authority to help the conservation efforts of
the last remaining Silverback Gorillas I will be visiting.

£600 will go on project cost of food, accommodation and travel, most of which
will go to the non profit trek company, the Home of Edirisa, who support the
communities we will trek through.

The remaining £1,100 will go directly to East African Playgrounds to fund their
incredible work.

I am also fundraising form my flights, so any money that I will raise above the
£2,000 can be reimbursed by East African Playgrounds to me (upon request)
up to the cost of my flight.

*Please note, if you are a relative of mine you cannot gift aid your donation,
according to charity law.

Please donate what you can to give children in Uganda their childhoods back. Przemek Zdybel
