Story

"Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. 

I recently graduated for my Masters in International Relations - which focussed on international development. I am pleased to announce that the International Citizen Service (ICS) has offered me the chance to put this degree into action by sending me off to Africa as a volunteer. ICS - a British organisation known for bringing young people together to fight poverty - has set me up with this amazing charity called Challenges Worldwide. 

In March I will be traveling with this charity to Uganda as a Team Leader for one of their development programmes. I will be taking 10 business orientated volunteers along with me who will be supporting local businesses in Uganda. Together we will help them strengthen their skills and abilities, generate income, and develop their business in a fair an sustainable way.

Challenges Worldwide has over 15 years of experience and has successfully assisted hundreds of organisations in more than 40 countries. Will you help me sustain their programme, so they can continue to make an impact? Your contribution will make a real difference to the lives of people in developing countries. Thank you for your support!

Apart from online fundraising I will be involved in various other fundraising activities, like a TENNIS BALL GUESSING CONTEST, and a WINTER DIP into the sea. It would be real nice if you could make a small donation just so that I wont be counting hundreds of tennis balls, and diving into the sea in the middle of December for no reason!
