I am Lizzie, i am a third year students studying Sports Development and Coaching at Sheffield Hallam University. I have Recently Won the AMAZING opportunity through my university to be 1 of only 80 people globally to take part in Balloon Kenya.
Balloon Kenya brings young people from around the world to volunteer in kenya for 6 weeks with local entrepreneurs. This volunteering will mean that i can help build and create businesses that that community want to run. This will make a HUGE difference as it is a great way to help bring communities out of poverty.
I am really looking forward to taking part in this programme because i want to help make a change to the world and start to bring these communitys out of poverty.
I want to experience what these communities are going through and with their passion help them run their own business that they deserve.
I intend to make an impact on the world and to know that i have helped change peoples lives for the better. University has taught me to make the most of every opportunity that comes your way. I was lucky enough to be selected for Balloon Kenya and i really want to make the most of the experience to make the biggest impact.
This can only happen with your help and donations.
Anything no matter how small can make a huge difference to the communities in Kenya.
