Playing for Life

Playing for Life was set up in 2005 by RTE TV Presenter, Tracy Piggott, following a trip to Ethiopia.

By asking African Communities what they need, Playing for Life aims to provide funding for Educational and Sporting facilities using local staff with the long term aims of employment and self sufficiency.

We always need volunteers with energy and enthusiasm and I hope we can convince you to travel to Tanzania with us on our next project  in 2013 for approximately 10 to 12 days. Volunteers will be asked to fundraise to cover all expenses (flights, transfers, accommodation, meals & water) and fund the project. If you require any further information or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our office is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 1pm (045482479) or check out our website www.playingforlife.ie.
