As you may already know this is a fully funded (yes, free!) volunteer experience in Peru, South Africa, India or Ghana for 10 weeks. The government wants people’s horizons to be broadened and for people to learn about development issues abroad. This is a project that is going on for the next 2 years but if you wish to travel later on (lets say next year) we would advise you to apply now to get a place….
You will be doing loads of interesting stuff like- being a wildlife ranger, building schools, teaching, sports, art and crafts to name but a few things…..
There are still 4 vacancies for the August trips going to Peru and South Africa on the 19th of August and India on the 23rd of August. However, if you want to be in with a chance to go on these trips you will need to fill in your application forms by Friday at the very latest. You can do this online at http://www.myplatform2.com
