Malawi Project 2018

Tuesday 17th January 2017

Do you have any seniors who would relish a real charity challenge? Would your company like to really get involved in a project that makes a huge difference to those who need it? We are looking for volunteer seniors and leaders to take part in trip to Malawi to build and renovate classrooms for children who live in poverty.

 Why?

Malawi is the poorest nation in the world and we, along with our partner organisation Classrooms for Malawi, believe the key to unlocking the circle of poverty is education. The primary school classrooms in most schools are in a dilapidated state that are not fit for good learning so we are creating a project with senior members from companies all over Scotland to do something about it.

 When?

We are looking to go out at the end of June 2018 for two weeks.

 Who?

We are looking for a team of seniors from across the BB in Scotland who will be at least at the end of S4 by the summer of 2018. You must be up for a big challenge, willing to put the effort in to fundraise and be interested in understanding about poverty within a developing country. We are also looking for around five leaders who would be willing to do the same and help organise this fantastic opportunity.

 What’s the Process?

If you are interested in applying for a place, register your interest with Irene Davidson at Scottish HQ by February 20th. We will then run a selection process for all the applicants and get the team selected by the end of March. If selected, you will need to fundraise the amount required for your trip and for the materials required to renovate the classrooms before May 2018. (approx. £3000 per person for young people and leaders)

 How do I find out more?

Interested? To receive further information, please contact Irene Davidson on scottishhq@boys-brigade.org.uk or by phone 01324 562008 – Option 1.
