Meet some VERY cool kids!

You get to visit an orphanage where you'll meet some of the coolest kid's ever. Many of the children are looked after by their siblings and although they have a difficult childhood they are some of the happiest children you'll ever meet.

You'll see loads of cool animals!

During our weekend off we will go on a safari trip to try and spot the big 5! They don't sing like in Disney films but they're still pretty cool.

We will teach you loads of new skills from fixing bikes, leadership and coaching skills to media and photography...! These will help you make your CV even better so you land that dream job once you leave Leeds.

You'll fundraise a whopping £2000, which can sound a bit scary but as a group we'll do it together and have a lot of fun! Plus being able to tell people you've raised that much money is pretty impressive.

It's life-changing...

This project is life-changing for both you and the children you meet in South Africa. You will feel on top of the world once it's all over, students who went last year have told us "I am so glad I've seized this opportunity, it's been the best 2 weeks ever and I have gained so much confidence. I'ts been amazing."

You'll make friends for life...

Spending lots of time together as a team means you'll meet people from across the University and make friends for life!
