A short summary of MY project

Volunteer Zambia is a programme run by the Wallace Group, which operates through a

 collaboration between eight UK universities (including St Andrews). It uses sport as a tool to

 engage, educate and empower young people both in Zambia, around Lusaka, and the UK

 and enables them to learn key skills such as teamwork and communication while focusing

 on the enjoyment which sport can bring to the lives of young people.

Who Am I ?

I am Augustus, I grew up in London, moved to the Wirral in high-school and currently study International Relations and Philosophy at the University of St Andrews. I have a great interest in politics and global affairs and hope to pursue this in the future. I would describe myself as bubbly, talkative and energetic, always willing to help people where I can to make a difference. I have a love for sports, having previously played rugby consistently and I having always been an avid runner. The aims of this project therefore resonate with me personally as I believe sports and access to sports can be life changing, providing a whole range of endless opportunities. For myself sports, such as running provides an escape to allow me to relax and reflect, whilst rugby provided me time to socialise and meet new friends whom also shared the same love as myself for the sport. These are experiences I would love every child to have access too, and this is why this project is so important to me. I would be so grateful for your help to make it happen.
