A young lady from Ferndown is set to travel to Uganda in July this year, where she will take part in a Gorilla Trek and also live and work in the community helping to build a specially designed playground for the local children. The JTYAF is delighted to contribute to her travel expenses, helping her to realise an ambition to make a positive difference to the lives of the children in the communities that she visits.
Through their leading design East African Playgrounds tailor make each playground to suit the needs of each community. Their aim is to change the lives of the children across East Africa by developing children’s learning opportunities and environments. They work alongside local communities to build stimulating and exciting playgrounds, run arts and games programs as well as developing long term employment and training opportunities for young people, helping to combat the unemployment crisis.
This trip will no doubt be a life changing experience for this outstanding young lady and we look forward to hearing all about it on her return.
