Why choose one project when you can do two!

Malawi and Cameroon - 2015

This piece is a review written by one of our Trustees, Gilly Wright who decided to take a sabbatical during 2015 and volunteer with two of our partners in Africa. The article is written in Gilly's own words:
"I have been involved with Group AidCamps for over a decade and, having decided to take a sabbatical from work, it seemed a natural step to ask AidCamps if any of their partner organisations could use any of my skills for a while as an Independent volunteer.

AidCamps contacted all the partners and came up with two brilliant suggestions which used my skills to help Landirani Trust (Malawi) and SHUMAS (Cameroon) the trouble was I just couldn't pick between them so I decided to do both!

Sam's Village - Gilly's home for her time in Malawi

I have finished my first assignment with Landirani Trust in Malawi where I developed a feasibility study for them to move away from cooking with fire wood at their Eco-training Centre, Sam's Village and also looking at providing sanitary use of compost toilets for their maternity hospital.  Living and working with the team in Malawi was an amazing experience and I learned so much about the diversity, complexity and importance of the work they do to give opportunities to vulnerable people such as orphans, people with disabilities or those with HIV/AIDS. 

My Cameroon assignment with SHUMAS started on 3 September 2015 and I worked with them to develop their environmental programmes at their Biofarm facility, in schools they support across the region and within their own organisation."

Best wishes
