I am extremely excited to have finally raised enough money to pay for my trip to Ghana! This money has been raised by fundraisers at university and at home and I have received extremely generous donations from family members, friends and their families, clients of my Grandad’s business and a graciously accepted grant from De Montfort University’s Department of Politics and Public Policy in the form of the Ben Lazarus Award.
I am humbled and very grateful for all of the help that I received over the past few months. It has been a tough ride and at times I thought it impossible to achieve the amount necessary in such a small amount of time. However, thanks to the hard work of many of the amazing people I know I have been able to pull it off!
I leave in two months exactly tomorrow and I am incredibly excited for what is to come! I just need to pay for my vaccinations and kit and expenses whilst there now..
