Rugby Tykes coach Volunteering

Rugby Tykes coach Max Barber is volunteering in Tanzania.

VOLUNTEERING IN TANZANIA

I have signed up to volunteer for 3 weeks in Tanzania this summer with ‘SoapBox’, a non-profit Christian organisation. They are a well established charity which runs short trips to important locations to help those in need.

This project in the South of the country is based on construction work (school buildings) and spending time with  local children to help improve their English skills. I will be, along with the other volunteers, living in a rural village with the local people.

The experience will count towards my Gold Duke of Edinburgh Residential section and will be useful with my University applications next year.

As a family  we will be paying my costs of up to £1500 and I am trying to raise roughly £200 for building materials and children’s play equipment.

To that end I will be hosting a raffle on the 26th March. I would be very grateful for your support and any another donations would also be greatly appreciated.
