Story

Donate today and support the 'Making Noise Against Suicide' campaign!

The broad plan is a trip involving a group of young people from the Orkney Islands to the Western and Southern parts of Nigeria for volunteering work. The trip is necessary to open our minds and hearts to the struggles of those less fortunate than ourselves. For most of us, our global outlook is often limited and the opportunity to work with peers from outside of Europe are very minimal indeed. The trip would give us a unique chance to develop links in this regard, to increase knowledge of global citizenship and learning for sustainability. We are looking at engaging with the culture by working with a couple of local groups we have identified to help contribute to the improvement of facilities in three (3) local primary schools. We are planning to help build toilets ( with the help of two local groups:Gender Abilities and Issues Initiative and Injoy Springs) for kids attending these primary schools so that they can rightly be able to learn in a positive environment. We are also looking at working with a homeless charity (Voice of change Network. www.vocinternational.com ) in Lagos State to help feed the homeless, most of them kids and young people.

We are a non-religious humanitarian organization with a divine calling to propagate the virtue of love amongst humanity.

The dates for our trip will be as follows:

16th July- 6th August 2018.

And a breakdown of the costs that we will be aiming to fundraise in order to fulfill this volunteering work:

Volunteering Materials: 6 (six) toilets – 2 (male and female toilets) per identified primary school @£2,000 each x 3= £6,000

Travel: Kirkwall -Aberdeen Monday 16th July (Applying to Northlink Ferries for tickets for the group)

Aberdeen to Nigeria- Tuesday 17th July -£1,200 Return x 10 volunteers= £12,000

We appreciate any donations and look forward to sharing our journey with you!

Thankyou.
