Hi! I'm Elinor and this summer I am volunteering with EPAfrica, a charity that works with schools in rural Kenya and Uganda. I am passionate about ethical development, and aim to one day do this as a career. I will be going for 10 weeks to work in a partnership with a school, collaborating with students, teachers and locals to create sustainable, effective projects. I am really excited about this summer, both to help reallocate resources to improve education and to travel to an amazing part of the world that I have never been to before. Please donate what you can, thank you very much!

Event details

Summer 2019 in an East African school

The aim of this project is to work with secondary schools in Kenya and Uganda to give them the resources they need and provide an outsiders perspective on how to improve student welfare. We aim to follow the charity's 5 goals in our projects which are:

   1. Facilitating learning
   2. Improving health
   3. Supporting student welfare and rights
   4. Realising post secondary opportunities
   5. Strengthening school organisation

We endeavour to create sustainable projects that fulfil to the needs of students, teachers and locals. This is really important to allow the projects to continue to be effective even after we are gone and to ensure the money goes on what is actually useful.
