Fed up of this long, cold winter?
Tired of the credit crunch and recession?
Would you like to escape to somewhere hot?
You can with Platform2.
Spend 10 weeks volunteering in a developing country such as India, South Africa, Ghana or Peru. Then come home and share your experiences. If you are aged 18-25, then Platform2 could change your life forever.
For a taste of what to expect, including details about projects available, check these clips on YouTube.
Platform2 really does change lives. Duncan Bannatyne, entrepreneur and Dragons’ Den tycoon, has said: “Volunteering for a programme like Platform2 demonstrates these young people have the desire to do something extra with their lives and help others in the process. These are qualities employers are looking for on a CV and show more about a person than their qualifications alone."
Here’s what Eddie from Cwmbran, who travelled o Ghana with Platform2, said:
“Doing something to better the lives of our fellow human beings is the greatest honour ever!”
Platform2 is funded by the Department for International Development and brought to you by Christian Aid, Islamic Relief and BUNAC. It is aimed at young people who may not ordinarily have the opportunity to volunteer overseas. For more information, contact Angharad Rhys from Christian Aid in Cardiff on 029 2084 4646 / firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.myplatform2.com.
Please let young people know of this unique opportunity – you could be the one to change their lives forever. Forward this email.
We're looking for volunteers for March trips to South Africa, Ghana, India, Malawi and Peru:
