Festive Raffle to Support Children Affected by School Closures

Posted on 17 December 2021

Support the Play Action Festive Raffle to enrich the lives of disadvantaged children through play.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Uganda has become known for an unfortunate fact, it’s the country where schools have been closed for the longest time, 80 weeks and counting. That’s nearly two years of no education and an increase in child labour, poverty, exploitation and forced marriages. Help us to raise funds to ensure children in Uganda can learn, develop and heal through the amazing power of play.

Our festive raffle is a fantastic way to show your support for children who have been unable to access their basic rights. When you buy a raffle ticket, you will enable Play Action to provide the support that teachers need to engage learning through the playful programmes we’ve worked on for over 12 years.

There are some amazing, playful prizes to be won, so why not buy a bundle of raffle tickets for your or your loved ones this festive season and be in with the chance of winning, while supporting disadvantaged children?
