We know that these are truly challenging times for everyone and we can all do something to improve how we feel, while making a huge difference to the lives of those around us. Quest to Bidibidi  is a virtual challenge that starts at the charity’s Headquarters in Bletchley, in the UK and takes teams of up-to 12 people across 10 countries, covering 8,800km to Bidibidi settlement in Uganda.

Many children in East Africa have limited access to safe and fun play and their lives will inevitably be further impacted by COVID-19. Funds raised by teams who take part will help East African Playgrounds fund more projects to help children in East African enjoy the benefits of play. Join the Quest to Bidibidi today!

      Activities + Kilometers = Donations

Your support means everything. Donations help us continue our work to ensure that every vulnerable refugee child in East Africa has access to play. When you play through an activity of your choice, you clock up distance and the more donations you receive for your efforts, the closer we get to achieving our mission. We suggest a fundraising target of £50 per team member. Depending on your team size, your team target will vary! Team of 6 x £50 = £300. Team of 8 x £50 = £400. Team of 12 x £50 = £600.
