My Travel Story

I'm a 14 year old secondary school student. I want to go to Zanzibar to teach primary school children; English, Maths, and Sports. I was inspired to go when I found out that they have classes of up to 150 children with one teacher and very few resources. I have been told the children there are wonderful and are very grateful for everything we provide for them. We will be bringing resources to leave with the schools and helping the teachers out in the classrooms. I feel very lucky to live in this country and I want to give my time to children in poorer countries. I would love to find out about their culture and share my culture with them. I'm going to be doing some fundraising: car boot-sales, babysitting, bake sales and a run, I am also going to use some of my savings
