St Peter's Church

St Peter's is a vibrant Anglican church in the heart of Harrow, North West London.

Story

This summer I'm heading out to Malawi as part of a team of young people from St Peter’s Harrow to volunteer with the Malawi Eagles project, which is a project which seeks to release local people from hunger and poverty. It strives to achieve this through empowering locals to meet the needs of the community in a whole host of ways. 

Their programmes include community projects such as farming, child care, youth groups, churches, shelters for the elderly, helping those impacted by HIV/Aids and constructing structures such as flood control dykes.

I will be seeing the impact of poverty in its rawest form, hearing people’s stories and contributing to the work from digging Vegetable Gardens, to teaching under fives and helping build irrigation systems. The team will be right at the heart of how the Eagles are helping transform Malawi.

The team is fundraising in a whole host of ways including a big Thames Trek - walking 18 miles from Teddington and Tearfund HQ to central London and other events such as car-boot sales.

 

Being up in Liverpool during the academic year, I will also be carrying out my own little fundraising events too.

 

 

If you can give, any amount will be greatly appreciated to help me go, learn, experience and give, on a life transforming trip – both my life and the lives of those impacted by the project.
