R.iih'I a Playground! With 48% of the population under the age of i 4, a lack of childfriendly places to play and an incredibly high level of youth unemployment in Uganda; investment in child development and their futures is now more vital than ever. East African Playgrounds ([AP) takes a unique approach to

child development and youth unemployment through a holistic outlook on play. We train teams ofyoung adults to be highly skilled welders, builders and play workers who build high quality, community centred playgrounds for children in child care and education provisions across Uganda. By taking this approach our impact is wide reaching; training 25 playground builders building over 70 playgrounds giving over 108,000 children access during the life span of the playgrounds

We believe every child deserves aess to high quality, fun playgrounds

iAhat

We are the only organisation in East Africa that specialises in building playgrounds at the high quality and capacity levels that we achieve. By using our holistic approach, it allows our impact to be wide reaching. Before we opened our first workshop in Uganda it was only possible to buy low quality, unsafe play equipment which broke and became dangerous within months of buying them. By following international playground safety and building standards we build the high quality playgrounds we are renowned for. Since we established in 2009 we have developed over i 50 items of playground equipment to suit the diverse nature of play. We train our own teams of playground builders, use only the best local materials, run child play consultations so we can design each playground to meet the needs and wants of each group of children. These process give us the great track record we hold.

Play is vital in developing a child's fine motor, social, cognitive, problem solving and a range ofother skills. lt has also been proven that play alleviates stress, improves concentration and education performance along with helping children who are living through difficulties.

By building high quality, community centred playgrounds we are able to not only provide children with an all important development space but also train and employ young adults giving them a bright future in East Africa.

Planning your playground We use play theory and our child play consultation process to help us design each playground. This helps us to make sure that it not only suits the children who will be playing on it but also to give them the most benefit possible from their playground. Each ofour playgrounds includes designs that enable children to experience all six key elements of play so that every child will be able to develop in a range ofways whilst playing and having fun.

A(tiVe:

Helps children to physically interact, exercise and alleviate stress.

Children have the chance to act out real life scenarios & work through problems. lt is vital for inter-personal, problem solving, creativity and social skills. lt also has a large impact on their psychosocial development.

Having areas for children to be free & creative develops their fine motor skills.

This involves using positive risks in child's play; helping them to develop their coordination, gross motor skills and risk awareness, whilst learning their own capabilities.
