I am Kirstie, A stage two student Social worker. Through the things I have learnt over the past two years in University & witnessed within placement, I have decided to volunteer in Africa (Uganda) June 2014 to develop my knowledge, increase my understanding and help those in need.  

After various application stages, I have been accepted by Volunteer Uganda on their 6 week teaching program where I will teach a range of classes but also participate in HIV workshops to raise awareness and help individuals get tested. I will also do activities such as a bungee jump, weekend safari and chimpanzee tracking.

Although I have paid for most expenses myself, I feel it would be great if I could take over materials for the schools and children to help them develop. E.g, educational books, arts and crafts and games.

In Uganda about 67% of individuals are poor or highly vulnerable to poverty and over 90% of people live on less than a dollar a day.. So please help and support me make as much as a change we can. Once I have been I will post pictures so you are able to witness the impact we have made together!

So this is what this page is for.. to start fundraising and promote my opportunity. To start the process I am going to do a Skydive at the end of January/February (Scary I knowww) and ask people to sponsor me. I will then go on to think of other ideas - I am open to suggestions :)

Thank you
