Carla and Tom Gill were the two students who had the vision to start EAP. Since 2009 they have developed EAP from building one playground a year into what it is today. They are based between the UK and Uganda and are working towards opening new playground building workshops across East Africa in the coming years.
We have a fantastic building team made up of fully trained and apprentice playground builders. They are responsible for the installation of all of our steel work and quality control – they’ve even created some of our most popular designs. From day one they are trained on the importance of play and are some of our biggest advocates.
Arts and play team
Made up of graduates and trained Ugandan teachers, our arts and play team are responsible for running our arts and play program at some of the schools we work in. They are also a vital part of our play consultation to ensure our playgrounds are suited to the communities we build them in. They have really made this project their own and are some of the most creative people working with children in Uganda.
