We are an awareness, fundraising and international volunteering society.
We currently have a volunteering project in Uganda where we work with Little Big Africa (LBA www.littlebigafrica.org) a Ugandan health and sanitation NGO. Volunteers fundraise for the project and next summer (2016) go to eastern Uganda to build water tanks, protect water sources and build fuel efficient stoves. We have successfully sent students to Uganda for three years now.
Our second project to Cambodia with Golden Futures (http://www.goldenfutures.org.uk) promotes education by supporting disadvantaged children by giving them loans to start university (something we take for granted). The project allows volunteers to get involved in teaching workshops to disadvantaged children aiming to help them improve their CVs and application forms. The programme gives children the opportunity to do something meaningful outside the orphanage.
Past fundraising events have included a Jazz Night, Bucket Shakes, Cake Sales, Sponsored events and the Three Peaks Challenge!
We are part of the InterVol charity so we benefit from their support, knowledge and help with fundraising.
