Cadi Williams In August 2020 I am going to Uganda with East African Playgrounds to help build a playground for a school, bringing the developmental benefits of play to children in rural areas.

East African Playgrounds has built over 300 playgrounds across Uganda in schools, community centres and refugee settlements. These playgrounds are not only a vital space to have fun, make friends and play together but they have also proven to increase school attendance and enrolment, reduce antisocial behaviour and increase the perceived importance of children having their childhoods.

From gaining a new playground a teacher from Kawule Primary School explains how she is now able to use it as a learning resource. "Before the playground was installed, I would struggle to teach topics, such as budgeting and money, due to lack of resources. But ever since the playground was installed, I have been using the play shop for the children to learn through role play, resulting in the children grasping the topic much faster and with deeper understanding."

Help me reach my fundraising target of £1260.
