First Steps of My Volunteering Overseas Journey...


In February next year I will be volunteering for 3 months on a development programme in Zambia. This is part of 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 Zambia, on a project themed around health. 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.
I need to raise £1500 for VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas) who are one of the respected development charities that deliver ICS. This will allow them to continue to bring about positive change in the developing communities where they work. You can check out their amazing work here: http://www.vso.org.uk/
I’m doing various activities to raise money and you can keep track of how I get on here on my Justgiving page or on my Twitter and Facebook pages. Any contribution from you will make a real difference to the lives of people in developing countries, so please dig deep! Also donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. 
This new blog will also be used to regularly document my experience throughout the entire volunteering journey, so keep an eye out for frequent posts!
Thanks for your support!
