Volunteering in Namibia, Jessica Christiansen                

Jessica Christiansen, from Morecambe, is seeking to volunteer overseas with the Project Trust, a gap-year organisation. She plans to work on a placement at a social care project in Namibia for 12 months.

The JWCT decided to support Jessica with an award of 250 in April 2010 as she was struggling to reach the 4,850 fundraising target due to family circumstances.

Jessica wrote and said “your generous donation will be put towards the good cause of helping primary school children learn English as a foreign language which will help give them a wider range of opportunities for their future.

Tricia Willson, JWCT trustee, said “we are so pleased to be able to help Jessica. Jeremy [after whom the charity is named] thoroughly benefited from his year overseas with the Project Trust and we hope she has the same positive experience.”

Project Trust was founded in 1967 as an educational charity on the Hebridean Isle of Coll in North West Scotland. Project Trust sends about 200 volunteers to twenty-five countries annually and is widely respected as one of the most experienced and professional gap year organisations in the UK. Over 5,000 volunteers have spent time abroad with Project Trust.
