A bit about us:

  • We are an international development organisation that works closely with institutions such as UNICEF, DFiD and USAID.

  • We work through local partners to deliver grassroots programmes and in doing so, have become experts in the emergency education space.

  • We don’t make any profit on delivering this course. We want to train you - the NGO professionals of the future - on how to deliver locally led solutions to global issues.

  • With 8 years experience with volunteers, we can promise you will be well looked-after & shown how to make the most of the country you are in.

 

The Fundraising.

As part of the programme, we ask that you aim to raise £1,000 in aid of Street Child, with your Student Team Leader and the Street Child fundraising team there to help you along the way. Our project work is only made possible through successful fundraising, and so this is a great way to make an even bigger contribution to Street Child’s work. During your trip, you'll have unique opportunity to actually see the impact of your fundraising!
