We are pleased to announce that yesterday all of the 17S Raleigh ICS volunteers arrived safe and well in Morogoro. They have already been allocated to a project area; WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) or Livelihoods and will spend the next few days with their respective Team Leaders (TLs) and Deputy Operations Managers (DOMs) finding out more about the projects and taking part in a variety of training sessions. A few days ago, the TLs also arrived back from their project planning visits (PPVs) so they will be able to share their first-hand experiences of the villages, communities and project partners with the volunteers during training. The countdown has officially started, three days of training before everyone deploys!

Her speech to the UN in 2013 where she spoke powerfully about every girl’s right to an education, has been set to music and will be aired for the first time today. Read on to discover how we are contributing to Malala’s mission of ensuring girls have access to education.
