New Horizons is an International Social action programme for young people from the Medway area who may face a range of barriers and may otherwise not have had such an opportunity or the chance to participate in cultural exchange. The New Horizons experience will build confidence, enable participants to develop critical life skills and empower them to make a positive difference to their life and the lives of others.
The 2017 trip will be to Ghana in West Africa in October 2017. The Social Action projects there will include
Volunteering in a fishing village called Abrobiano –running educational sessions around healthy habits, sanitation and recycling. The group will also run basic IT sessions with the school children and help the farmers with the harvest.
Volunteering at Play Soccer Ghana- supporting with football sessions and homework clubs and promoting the benefits of being involved with the organisation to the wider community.
Participants attend workshops once a week over the summer 2017 where they prepare for the trip and plan as a team all the fundraising required to cover the cost of participation in the programme.
