There are a small number of my school friends who have accepted the World Challenge opportunity to travel to Botswana in July 2020. There will be a lot of trekking to get to where we need to go including across parts of the Kalahari desert.
One of the reasons i have taken on the challenge is to help me understand how others live and to help me to learn how life is for people who are not as fortunate as i am. I hope to be able to do something to make their life easier.In the past teams of school students like us have built houses for school teachers, repaired classrooms, painted murals, built playgrounds and vegetable gardens and have been involved with conservation efforts in the surrounding area. The projects are always focused on renovation or maintenance work in the local community.
I am very excited to learn about the different cultures i will experience.
