This summer I am spending a month in Tanzania (East Africa) where I will be volunteering my time to teach English in a primary school.
The money raised will be donated to Plan My Gap Year’s English Teaching programme in Tanzania which aims to provide local schools and orphanages with support in a variety of ways, helping to teach children English. This is important as over a third of people in Tanzania live below the national poverty line.
I believe it is in everyone's interest to get the less fortunate out of the negative cycle they are trapped which can be done through education. As Nelson Mandela said; "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world".
