African Adventures is a volunteer travel organisation dedicated to changing lives in the UK and Africa through meaningful and worthwhile volunteer experiences. They promote responsible volunteering and best-practice throughout their trips and they pride themselves on delivering an experience which is worthwhile and impactful for both the volunteer (me) and their partner educational projects. They really care about making a positive difference, and I hope to aid their cause in Woe, a village in Ghana, by helping out in schools there through teaching and building work. I look forward to this challenging but rewarding role, which will give me a sense of helping those less fortunate than I. Going to Ghana will broaden my horizons and will hopefully give me a greater sense of appreciation for my own lifestyle. I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to travel with African Adventures through my secondary school, The Costello School, which I am currently attending as a Year 9 pupil. .
