Looking for Leeds University Volunteers…

playgroundsWe’ve had the following message from Becky at the Leeds RAG society and we’re happy to pass it along:

Are you looking for a new experience? Would you like to make a real difference? Do you relish the chance for a bit of adventure? Then how about volunteering for East African Playgrounds, a charity that builds playgrounds for rural village schools in Uganda! We are recruiting a group of volunteers from Leeds University to come to Uganda with us next summer for 4 weeks to assist in fighting for the child’s right to play. You will be spending your mornings building the playground that you have fundraised for, while afternoons are spent running arts and games classes for the children of the school. The unique aspect of this project is that volunteers get to build the playground from start to finish; on day one there is an empty field and a month later you will see scores of happy and excited children playing on a brand new playground which you not only built, but also funded. The best thing about how we work is that volunteers get to live within the community, which means they make friends with the locals as well as the kids, who are very excited to have them there. Our volunteers need no experience, just enthusiasm, a desire to help and an appetite for new experiences! Make sure you come to one of the information meetings to meet the charity and find out a load more information:
