Story

VSO brings people together to address marginalisation and poverty. Right now, VSO is bringing justice to rape survivors in Pakistan, ending stigma against disabled children in Ethiopia and tackling the youth skills gap in Uganda.

I will be going to Nepal in April 2020 to assist the VSO ICS team who work on developmental and Governance programmes to promote; access to education, women’s rights and community readiness for natural disasters. The combination of child marriage, poverty and a lack of understanding for the importance on education means that the people of Nepal access very low standards of teaching.

In March, I'm going to be taking on the Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge, I'll be climbing Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in (hopefully) less than 12 hours!!!

Please join me as I take a stand against poverty and support VSO's uniquely effective approach that reached over 1.5 million people last year alone. Read more about this vital work, please visit their website: www.vsointernational.org/fighting-poverty

Anything donated will not fund my trip, but is instead given directly to VSO. Donations allow VSO to continue to carry out the essential work they do in multiple communities around the world.
