Fundraiser secures place on government funded International Citizen Service

Michael Satchell, who studied in our School of Law, will travel to Nicaragua in March 2013 to work on the development programme for 10 weeks.

Michael will team up with Nicaragua volunteers to tackle some of the problems facing the local community, after getting a place on the government funded International Citizen Service (ICS).

ICS allows young people aged 18-25 to contribute to long-term development projects in countries like Burkina Faso, Sierra Leone and Nepal. 

The scheme offers young people the chance to develop personally and learn about team working and leadership on projects that are of genuine value to communities around the world.

On return to the UK, ICS volunteers undertake an ‘Action at Home Project’, ensuring that their new skills also benefit their local communities.
