World Challenge Sponsorship Southern India

Following in the steps of others from the village I will be taking part in a World Challenge project in Southern India (Kerala) during July.  World Challenge is an organisation that sends young people on educational expeditions to help others in under-developed areas of the world.  We will be helping orphaned and underprivileged children in small but important ways; by building a toilet block at a school, rebuilding a collapsed wall at another school and participating in their English classes.

For the building projects not only do we have to organise them when we arrive, we also have to negotiate with the locals to buy and deliver the materials we need.  B&Q do not have any outlets where we are going!

To take part in this experience I have been working all year to pay for the trip you may well have seen me working in The Peacock.  I have to pay my own passage and make a contribution towards the building materials.

However, I do need some help to reach my target fund and I would like to ask if anyone would be willing to support me through sponsorship.  Any contribution would be a great help not only for me but also the beneficiaries of the project.  Please either make your contribution at The Peacock or at my home, Meadow View, Main Street next door but one to the Village Hall.

Many many thanks if you do make a contribution.  I will put together an article for the News telling you how the trip went and what we managed to achieve.
