Ugandan Gorilla Trek with East African Playgrounds

Take your journey by foot and hand-crafted dug-out canoe across the amazing landscapes of the Ugandan highlands tackling mountains, extinct volcanoes, forests and lakes with breath-taking views along the way, including the famous River Nile. Trek through Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and come face to face with the last remaining wild silverback mountain gorillas in the world. Then, see where your fundraising is going by living and volunteering in a school for a week, transforming an empty playing field into a vibrant, exciting and creative playground for all to enjoy.

Play is one of the most important building blocks for a child's growth. Without the freedom to play children struggle to make friends, to learn, to reach their physically capabilities, to enjoy life and so much more. By building safe, fun and high quality playgrounds across Uganda, EAP is able to promote and reinforces the importance of every children having their childhood. All our playgrounds are tailor-made to the community, they are built using local materials by our highly professional local build team. Just one playground will impact hundreds of children over it's 10 year life-span. Do you want to be part of making this impact?

Climb Mount Kilimanjaro with Hope for Children

Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive sights in Africa and climbing it is one of the all-time great achievements, with only 1% of the world’s population taking on the challenge. Rising majestically from the savannah of Tanzania, Kilimanjaro soars to a chilling 5,895m, climbing high above the cloud line. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the largest free-standing mountain in the world. Climb your way skywards through all types of terrain as you walk through the clouds on your trek to the roof of Africa. Watch the sunrise over the vast African plains as you finally reach the summit you’ve been working tirelessly towards before trekking back down to enjoy the more relaxing side of Tanzania and Zanzibar. 

Hope for Children enable vulnerable children to experience a positive childhood by improving their access to education and healthcare whilst empowering their families to support themselves. Be a part of this change!

Trek the Great Wall of China for The Children's Society

Pass through landscapes little-changed in centuries. Discover not only the seldom-visited rural landscapes along the Great Wall, but also the bustling city life of Northern China.

Join The Children's Society on this epic mission:

Right now in Britain there are children and young people who feel scared, unloved and unable to cope. The Children’s Society works with these young people, step by step, for as long as it takes.

We listen. We support. We act.

There are no simple answers so we work with others to tackle complex problems. Only together can we make a difference to the lives of children now and in the future.

Because no child should feel alone.
