Volunteering in Uganda - Ilya Kalenik
Ilya Kalenik, from Nuneaton, Warwickshire will spend a year
volunteering with the Project Trust in Uganda, in East Africa.
The JWCT has contributed funds to help Ilya travel to and from
his training and briefing course on the Isle of Coll in Scotland
prior to travelling to his overseas project in August 2009. The
JWCT stepped in as Ilya was struggling to raise the funds to
attend due to difficult family financial circumstances.
The funding continues the JWCT’s relationship with the Project
Trust. Jeremy Willson, after whom the charity is named,
participated in a Project Trust project in Indonesia when he was
18, and hence the charity is keen to support others seeking to
volunteer overseas with the organisation, particularly those that
are finding fund-raising challenging.
Paula Smalley, at the Project Trust, said “Thank you so
much again for your help, Ilya . . . was telling me about the
difference your support has made.”
