Hi, my name is Charlie and I've been given the opportunity to help out with a life-changing humanitarian project in Tanzania.
Along with classmates from Lacon Childe School in Cleobury Mortimer, I've been given the chance to spend 4 weeks at Camp Tanzania in Summer 2019. Transforming dilipidated schools, we'll be turning basic classrooms into safe and clean learning environments which inspire children.
Many families in this Tanzanian village cannot afford to put a roof over their heads, so we'll be lending a hand with house construction too.
Helping to safeguard the future of endangered wildlife, we'll also be monitoring elephants, zebras and giraffes, and digging waterholes for these incredible species.
To help us get out to Tanzania, on 30th August 2018 myself and a school friend Harvey are cycling from Aberystwyth 85 miles back home to Clee Hill. We'd be really grateful of any sponsors for this ambitious bike ride!
Another of our fundraising events is a cake baking competition hosted by local baking powder supplier Kudos Blends. For anyone looking to try our sweet treats, our cakes will be sold in pubs and shops in Cleobury Mortimer.
I'm so excited to learn more about the Tanzanian way of life on this amazing project! I’d really appreciate any donations you can kindly contribute, so that I can join the Lacon Childe team in making a real impact.
Camp Tanzania is a life-changing expedition organised by Camps International who provide 'ethical journeys with impact'.
