Story

 Hey everyone, 

I am fundraising for Play Action International charity as I will be travelling to Jinja, Uganda with a team of volunteers to build a playground over 2 weeks at a local community school. Transforming an empty field into an exciting new playground with colour and fun will leave a legacy for children to develop essential life skills, and play stimulates their physical, psychological and social behaviour to enhance learning. I will also be contributing to the community by doing litter picking and collecting plastic to be recycled into play materials. 10% of the fundraising money goes towards building more playgrounds and funding Play Action International’s apprenticeship scheme, which gives the children a career and qualifications. The rest of the money will go towards the playground my team will build, the materials and employing a local skilled labour build team to help. My goal on top of all this is to gain a global outlook and immerse myself in this cultural opportunity, as well as setting fun challenges and introducing sports into their curriculum.
