Making a difference in people's lives #internationalwomensday

I'm a third year student fundraising to help raise money for the charity VSO who send volunteers to work in third world countries. I will be volunteering this summer in Birampur, Bangladesh for 3 months, working with young people, particularly women, alongside local authorities to help increase awareness of their rights. This will largely include prevention of childhood marriage, which is higher in Birampur than any other district. We will also help to improve employability skills, knowledge and competence of young people. 

The money raised will go straight to the charity so they can continue to make a lasting difference in disadvantaged communities. 

Any donations or support anyone is able to offer, no matter how small, will help make a real difference.

Thank you!
