Story

My name is Ollie. 2018  will be the year when I fulfil a lifelong ambition to visit Africa with one of the many projects our wonderful Irish Charities are involved i and become actively involved in supporting  on the ground. On April 2nd, 2018, I will be part of a group of 10 to travel to Zambia. As part of the Alan Kerins African Projects I will become involved in delivering the projects being undertaken there, be that educational, construction or support, over a 10 day period. In just over a decade, Galway sports star Alan Kerins and his volunteers have raised close to €5 million to end poverty and suffering of tens of thousands of people in rural Southern Africa. In 2015 Alan teamed up with Gorta-Self Help Africa, and in partnership is supporting Gorta programmes to end hunger and poverty in Africa. The projects I will be involved in are all based on the Gorta Self Help projects based in Zambia, aiming to alleviate poverty and developing self sustaining projects.  Futher details on all the projects where you funding is aimed at can be found here. https://selfhelpafrica.org/ie/zambia.Each Volunteer is tasked with an aim to raise 10,000 euro or even more, as much money as possible,  to help improve their lives. The proceeds of all the events I will be organising  will be going towards supporting the Self Help Africa projects Zambia and also to fund materials, both education and construction, as well as the flights to get there. I will also be bringing the accordion and the Siege of Ennis will be taught and performed , the Fields of Athenry will ring out and hopefully we can engage in song and dance with the children of Zambia. Any support you can provide will make a huge difference. Thank you!
