A long long time, many centuries ago, I told you that I had applied to go to Tanzania on ICS – which is a thing that my government does that is a tiny bit like the peace corps but not really. Five months, 3 trains, 2 coaches and an interview later, I recieved a phone call telling me that I have been successful in my application, and thus the journey begins. In October, I will be volunteering for 3 months on a with Raleigh International in Tanzania, as part of the International Citizen Service (ICS) Scheme. This will primarily centre around improving the accessibility of proper sanitation, in a country where only 55% of people have access to clean water. In order for me to be able to do this, I need to raise some money to enable the charity to keep on doing the brilliant work that they do. If you feel like donating anything, however small, I would really appreciate it.
In order to tell you everything that’s going on in my journey to raise money and help people, I’ve started a blog. No, it in no way replaces what we’ve got going on here. (That sounded much less weird in my head, sorry). Whether you can donate or not, please follow the blog for all sorts of updates what I’m doing with regards to fundraising and volunteering itself. Expect pictures of my face, of cake sales, and the occasional wall of text.
