Welcome to Play Action International, formerly East African Playgrounds in the UK. Read about our rebrand.

About us

We are passionate about play. We use innovative and effective play-based interventions to help children learn, heal and develop.

Our History

Our History

In 2009, we were struck by the lack of safe and fun play facilities for disadvantaged children and the potential impact on their well-being and development. Our Founders, Carla & Tom, were not going to let this pass them by without doing something about it!

Discover how we have grown into an award-winning international development organisation whose services have already impacted the lives of over half a million children in Africa.
