Volunteering to make a difference28 July 2016
The school build in Shiyala Zambia is for 300 primary school children. The work is carried out by 25 local villagers, men and women, paid a good local wage. This gives a welcome injection of cash into a very impoverished community.
But very importantly, we also have 7 dedicated hard working volunteers, giving their all to the project. Freek, Louise, Arthur and Kieron are sponsored by Cardiff Uni Global Opportunities; 2 architecture students Andrea and Amit are sponsoring themselves and Primary School teacher Katie is just doing it for love. Their support in time and money is invaluable: we couldn’t do this without them.
I know they’re all growing through the challenge, never seen such a determined bunch. If I can quote Freek: “every student should take a month and do this during their time”
