World challenge I am taking part in the world challenge expedition to Swaziland and Mozambique in 2019. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, where as a group we can build our teamwork along with helping communities in the area. We will be helping local orphans, in which their families have been affected with HIV, we will get involved in activities such as teaching, fetching water, reconstruction of schools and medical centers. We will work closely with Neighbourhood Care Points (NCPs) and schools in the region, which we will give support in the few days that we are helping out. NCPs is a foundation started in 2001 in a bid to support the growing number of orphaned and vulnerable children in Swaziland by providing day care centers, where they primarily receive food, basic education and healthcare. There are an estimated 120,000 orphaned children in Swaziland, which is one of the reasons we are travelling to give support and help. Not only will we help others but we will be hiking, going on safari drives, zip wires and we will even be part of a marine research project - which is a project where we go snorkelling to look at the conservation of whale sharks, turtles and coral reefs - this is something which I would have never been able to do if this experience wouldn't have been offered to me. This experience will certainly open paths and it will be life-changing, since the students ,such as me, we are responsible in the organisation of food, travel and accommodation. In order for me to take part in this expedition I would need to raise 3,000 pounds overall. This is a challenge I am willing to take and I hope you will help and join me through this journey of fundraising.
