One of our young residents, Carl, has been accepted onto International Citizen Service (ICS) through one of their delivery partners, Restless Development UK. He’ll head out (fingers crossed) to Nepal in mid February with the rest of the young people on his wave. This will be an amazing experience for him to travel and work with other UK volunteers (and local volunteers) in a disadvantaged community in a developing country.
He is busy raising the £800 he needs to fund his placement. On Friday 17th of January, he completed a head shave in order to try and raise sponsorship.
We are all about empowering our young people so they access the same opportunities and aspirations as all young people. In order to try and meet this goal, Carl has also organised a small raffle of prizes donated by local businesses as well as a sweepstake for two pairs of Leicester Tigers tickets.
Please support Carl if you can, he will be doing great things to make a positive impact as an ICS volunteer. This will also be followed up with a 6 month “Action at Home” phase. Well worth a little sponsor. Please note, this money will go directly to Restless Development to fund Carl’s placement. You can donate here.
