Just sent in an application for the Alan Kerins Projects. This organisation is based in Zambia and is a development programme that educates and helps raise awareness of issues important to the area such as health. It also offers the chance for youths and young adults to cater for their own needs through an advisory role empowering them to take control of their own situation and pass on this knowledge to others in the communities. The application is for a ten day journey to Zambia that will help search, find, teach and be taught – while bringing about positive change in the lives of others. We are keeping our fingers crossed here in the hope that we will be offered one of the five places on the short-list!
Check out the project in any case as it is a truely inspiring project.
