East African Playgrounds is a charity that builds playgrounds all over Uganda, helping to empower some of the world's most disadvantaged children. Play has an incredible benefit on a child's development, building their physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills.

I've signed up for the Gorilla Trek - I'll be taking on the Ugandan terrain to find the last remaining wild Silverback gorillas, before volunteering to build one of the playgrounds myself.

Of the £2000 I raise, £300 will go to the Ugandan Wildlife Authority to help the conservation of the gorillas, £600 will go to the cost of food and accommodation, most of which will go to the non-profit trekking company, the Home of Edirisa, who support the communities we trek through, and £1100 will go directly to East African Playgrounds to fund their incredible work.

Please donate anything you can, and help give children their childhoods.
