My story

[p]Hi everyone, thanks for visiting my page. From August 2018 to August 2019 I will be spending a year in Namibia, teaching children mainly Art and PE, an opportunity that they would otherwise not have. I will be going overseas as part of a charity called Project Trust. Their aim is to give young people aged 17-19 the opportunity to spend a year volunteering overseas in a completely different culture, teaching or doing social care in communities that have expressed an interest in hosting, getting to know and working with the volunteers.[/p][p]My good determination. patience, resilience and communication skills will be my strongest essential skills while overseas and while there I hope to build on my leadership, self confidence and awareness before hopefull embarking on a career in Medicine. Also, having lived in the UK my whole life (and rarely leaving), I would like to gain an experience and understanding of what it's like to be part of a completely different culture and location to home.[/p][p]My first challenge is to raise to £6200 needed to cover things such as my air ticket, accommodation, insurance and other essential things while overseas. I will be organising various events as well as doing sponsored activities, but would greatly appreciate any donations of any size here on my Virgin Money Giving page! I would also welcome any fundraising ideas and suggestions and help in spreading the word.[/p][p]You can email me at izzysyearinafrica@gmail.com and find out more about Project Trust at www.projecttrust.com.[/p][p]Thank you![/p][p]Izzy[/p]

Hi Izzy, here's £10 towards your trip. I told Lucy I would sponsor her abseil and I'm very proud of her for doing it. She's very proud of you and that's why she did it, although I think she was a wee bit scared! I hope you have an amazing year!
