“As part of my Duke of Edinburgh’s Silver Award I had to choose something to do for my volunteering, so I chose to approach People Against Poverty to help with things like admin for 6 months.
My mum has been involved in this charity for many years, first as a formal Trustee and now the charity’s Company Secretary. I have always admired the work they do for people less fortunate than ourselves. Through the child sponsorship programme that People against Poverty run, our family sponsored a child in the past called Cosmin from Romania. I was happy that we could help him afford things like textbooks and pens in order to get his education as every child deserves one.
I have been accepted and I am so happy that I can help out with this incredible charity for a cause that I strongly believe in and hopefully I can gain more knowledge and experience from working with them.”
We are delighted to have Maya work on a 1 hour basis per week for 6 months with us to help her achieve her Silver Award. Maya is a talented and intelligent young girl and we think she will go far.
