I have been selected to volunteer overseas with International Service on an International Citizen Service placement for three months in Rwanda. ICS works with communities that have specifically requested their help. It also aims to inspire young people in the UK and overseas to become active citizens who are passionate about long term community development. 

My project focuses on human rights of those in the community, especially the youth as the majority of Rwanda's population is under 25. I will be promoting employment opportunities for young people and empowering young people to advocate for change by supporting civil society organisations.

The money raised will go towards enabling the overall costs of ICS, ensuring they can continue sending youth volunteers to the developing world to make a lasting difference in disadvantaged communities.
