Students visit to help centre and support young people.
“A small effort from us has already made such a big change in just a few days.”
Speaking from the orphanage Ridwanah Gurjee, UCLan Senior Lecturer and Volunteer Co-ordinator, commented: “The Director of the Agadir Orphanage Centre, Hicham Eddbourh, has been extremely supportive and welcoming. He believes this project will really help to improve the children’s aspirations for the future. He has also commented on the passion and commitment shown by our UCLan Students after seeing great dedication to the children.
“The experience will significantly enhance the students’ learning and allow them to transfer new skills back into the communities they seek to serve, with a sustainable benefit to the community as a whole.”
Nadra Khan, a foundation degree Community Leadership student, added: “A small effort from us has already made such a big change in just a few days.”
The students will be able to continue their work when they return to Burnley through e-mentoring which will allow them to keep in touch with their mentees over the academic year.
