Nottingham Forest supporters are being offered the chance to learn more about a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a difference in Africa.Forest in the Community have teamed up with African Adventures to offer supporters the chance to spend seven nights (1-9 June 2015) working in Woe, a deprived rural coastal area of south-eastern Ghana.
Those interested in the trip, which will also help fund various projects in Nottingham, are invited to attend an informative presentation in the Champions Centre, opposite main reception at The City Ground on Tuesday 9 December (6-7pm).
Volunteers of all ages are welcome (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult) and those involved can choose how they help – be it teaching in schools or by providing multi-sports coaching.
Forest in the Community’s development manager Lawrie Dudfield said: “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to Ghana and be part of an extremely inspiring project.
“Following on from our successful 2014 pilot trip we hope to take more volunteers this year to allow more people to fully experience the African Adventure."
Dan Mew, UK development manager at African adventures added: “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Nottingham Forest in the Community.
“Volunteers on this trip will help support our Community Development Pledge, where we have committed to providing schools and youth centres across Ghana with teaching, coaching and community support, as well as development assistance.
“In Ghana, the needs of the community are particularly pressing and we are truly grateful to the club. Additionally, we are excited at the prospect of supporting the Nottingham Forest in the Community team and their vital work across the Nottinghamshire area.
“Most of all, fans and staff will have a life changing experience and by the end of the trip will have positively engaged with over 1000 children who live in extreme poverty.”
