Thank you for coming by my page! I am Sanah Richards, a volunteer with VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas) on an International Citizen Service placement. From September this year, I will be living and volunteering for 3 months in Iringa, Tanzania, to help the education projects taking place in the communities there.
ICS works with communities that have specifically requested their help. It also aims to inspire young people in the UK and overseas to become active citizens who are passionate about long term community development.
The first part of my placement is a challenge to raise 800 GBP towards the work of VSO and their ICS partners. The money raised will go towards enabling the overall costs of ICS, ensuring they can to continue sending youth volunteers to the developing world to make a lasting difference in disadvantaged communities.
My place on the programme is already paid for - visas, flights, travel and medical insurance, medication, vaccines, food, the lot! This is because ICS believes in the positive impact of young people and wants to offer them an opportunity to change their lives and the lives of others. All the funds volunteers raise will support all ICS partners to run the programme effectively, always contributing to their vital work.
As well as my Just Giving page, I will be holding some really exciting and fun fundraising events - keep your eyes peeled here for updates. Any contribution from you will make a real difference to the lives of people in developing countries, so please dig deep!
Thanks for your support!
