When I mentioned I was going to be sleeping in a tent and working in the world’s poorest country for a month during the school holidays most of my friends asked why.

Team Qocha – a teacher’s view

Our trip left the UK on July 16th 2016 and we returned, fitter and leaner on August 13th 2016. The trip had been organised in November 2014 and all the students had been fundraising since then to pay for their expedition. Many of the students had raised all of the money themselves through a variety of means - discos, quiz nights, bag packs at local supermarkets, car washes, talent shows, car boot sales and beauty nights to name a few....

Bournemouth & Northampton Uni adventures in Borneo

Bournemouth & Northampton Uni adventures in Borneo

This summer, I travelled to Borneo as part of the joint Bournemouth & Northampton University group. I have always enjoyed being a volunteer and doing something meaningful, but also wanted to better myself. I believed Camp Borneo would let me do all that and get me out of my comfort zone.

Ecuador – Team Guacamayo Summer 2016

All of which will last a lifetime. We didn't know of the work ethic we would develop to make a change - no matter how big - to a community that is in need.
