East African Playgrounds take an innovative child-centred approach to education and use the power of play to transform the lives of children

We’re a small organisation with huge passion and ambition. We are super proud that in just 10 short years, through the support of our donors, we have built over 350 playgrounds across East Africa and supported over ½ million vulnerable children to have brighter futures. These children benefit from our play-based learning programmes and safe and exciting playground facilities which increase access to early years education and improve health and wellbeing.

Play inspires creativity, develops life-skills and can help children recover from trauma. Providing safe play facilities and empowering teachers and caregivers in early childhood development centres to engage children through play-based learning, is an effective and sustainable way to enhance children’s access to education. Fun and safe play gives children their right to play and their childhood back – enabling them to thrive and move towards a brighter future.
