The Main Project
We will be working alongside the Chilli Children partnership to build a physiotherapy
centre for disabled children, Disabled children are often isolated from society with little
educational or social facilities. This centre will help develop both physical and social skills
for the children.
Most days I will be spending about three hours at the project site.
Whether its carrying water, wheel-barrowing, bricklaying, rendering or painting, there will be lots
that I can do.
I will be working alongside a local team of builders, I will also have an opportunity to learn some new
skills and have some fun doing so!
It will also include assisting an orphaned family in a practical way; learning sign
language followed by an afternoon of outdoor games with deaf children; interacting with
disabled children at a life skills clinic.
With any extra money I have I will pledge it back into the country to help, these are some of the things you can help fund while out there:
£15,000 -Builds a classroom
£1,000 -Digs a well
£250 -Fix's a roof so a family can stay dry
£100 -Allows a social worker to help a community
£50 -Pays for a teacher for a month
£25 -Pays for a child to go to school
