About this cause

About our cause

My name is Clarissa and I am 19 years old. I study Anthropology BSc at The University of Kent, and I am currently in my second Year. In July 2015, I am volunteering to take part in a three week trip to Uganda with a few other students from my University. I will be doing this with EastAfricanPlaygrounds, a small charity that has already built 28 playgrounds in the past year. Playtime is extremely important for school children, as it is a fantastic way of learning - that isn't in the classroom. Not only does it give children some physical activities to do, it also gives them something to do together. Remember the feeling you had as a child when you walked into a new playground that you'd never played in before! Before I get to the school to build the playground, I will be hiking, climbing and canoeing my way through forests, jungles and across lakes until I reach the last of the Wild Mountain Gorillas in the world. I am really interested in primates, as I spend about half of my time learning about them for my course at University. I would love to be able to see these animals that I study up, a bit more up close and personal. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
