Student joins Raleigh International to help kids
A univesity student will be learning some very different lessons when she takes part in a Raleigh International project in Malaysia.
Seema Sharma, 22, is setting off for Kota Kinabalu on October, where she will help build kindergartens for communities and install gravity water feed mechanisms to bring fresh water to the villages. Seema, from Southall, said: "The charity is fantastic, sending volunteers all year round to help educate underprivileged children and conserve areas which are home to endangered species."
