About the programme:

 

Play Action International was founded on the fervent desire for children to have access to their right to play. Founders Tom and Carla constructed the very first playground at Walakuba West Primary School in Uganda in 2009, and since then over 400 playgrounds have been built, giving thousands of children access to play for years to come.

You can get involved and fundraise for the charity throughout the year, and then spend up to 4 weeks in Uganda volunteering to help build a fun, safe, and exciting playground at a school during the summer. Alongside your volunteering, you will have the opportunity to explore Uganda, and take part in activities like a Big 5 Safari, kayaking down world famous rapids, cruising along the river Nile at sunset, and much more!

As a charity, PAI are committed to running ethical and sustainable projects. To this end, all volunteers will take part in unskilled labour, ensuring that jobs are created and protected, not taken away. By volunteering with Play Action International, you can be confident that you are making a positive difference in the world, while enjoying a unique and exciting opportunity!
