Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page!  

I am extremely excited to tell you that this June, I will be taking part in an adventure to Zanzibar in Tanzania with Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO) on an International Citizen Service (ICS) placement. 

For 3 months, I will be working on long-term sustainability, employability and entrepreneurship within youth organisations in rural Zanzibar as part of a development programme. This is in partnership with International Citizen Service (ICS), which brings young people together to fight poverty and make a difference where it is needed most. I’ll be working alongside volunteers from Zanzibar, on a project that aims to encourage educational opportunities to gain employability skills and educating young people to set up their own businesses, within their local community.

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 money raised will go towards enabling the overall costs of ICS, ensuring they can
continue sending youth volunteers to the developing world to make a lasting difference in disadvantaged communities which benefit around 2 million people every year.

As a part of my fundraising I will be doing makeovers, cake sales, car boot sales, raffle tickets and organising an exciting event which you will all be invited to in the near future, so watch this space!

Any contribution from you will make a HUGE difference to the lives of people in developing countries, so please dig deep!

Thank you very much for you time and donations 😊
