Having fun one Sunday morning
One Sunday morning there was a huge downpour which lasted for several hours. As it had previously been so hot, the girls came out to dance and play whilst I even ended up washing my hair in the rain.

At the end of our placement we organised a careers fair in order to connect the students we had been working with to employers. The whole team of 40 volunteers worked incredibly hard to pull it off in a short space of time, and the event was a huge success with over 400 students attending.

Mainly taken at Ustawi college on a day we spent marketing our employability sessions. Unfortunately due to circumstances outside of our control we weren’t able to deliver any of our sessions there, however this allowed us to get involved in other activities such as organising the careers fair.
