Hi Families, Friends & Loved Ones, Just a quick update to let you know that the group is currently having a fantastic time out at the Game Park! 🙂 Internet reception can be very tricky to get while out there, so the Team Leader will be able to update you with some photos and information…



Horsing Around

After a weeks worth of work today we had to finally say goodbye to the two creches we have been working at.

Everyone got straight…

CRECHE BLOG – Keep on keeping on

Hey guys another great day at the Creches today. We were working hard to continue making bricks for the building, filling in the concrete foundations for the water catchment and building the soup kitchen. We also began on a new project, creating a large garden for a next door neighbour to the Creche who couldn’t…



Life on the Wild Side!

Howdy folks! Sorry we’ve been out of reception so long! You definitely know that you’re out in the middle of the African bush when you’re having to climb a water tower to make a phone call or send a text, but despite the technical difficulties, we had an absolute blast! As you’ll see, I was…
