I am a Design Technology teacher (hopefully) going to Kenya in 2018 to work in a deprived community with a school in Kenya to give support. We will be supporting by faciliatating learning as class teachers and also improving the school by helping with builidng better facilities. I see first hand the chances education can give to people if they take it. This is a chance for me to use my skills to give pupils the chance allot of pupils in the UK take for granted (the access to free education).
This oppourtnity means the local community can gain skills that they otherwise wouldn't be able to recieve due to most pupils in these areas not reaching secondary education. It will also help build more appropiate facilites that would otherwise take the community longer to put in place, or not have the knowlegde of how to.
It's a opportunity to make a small difference. I cannot change the world, but I can do a small part in helping someone.
