UNA Harpenden: Public Meeting - Raleigh International in Tanzania

Caroline Dynes is a volunteer working for the charity Raleigh International and she spoke about her work in Tanzania, where she had just spent 3 months. She described both the charity’s Livelihoods Project, which helps to deliver jobs, skills and businesses for young people and her role as this project’s Deputy Operations Coordinator in a rural village of about 1,100 people. She described her training for this role, which covered a multitude of items such as project management, alternative finances, medical supplies and liaison with village leaders and project partners. Caroline also described what it was like to live in a rural village in Tanzania (food, accommodation, dangers, free time, etc) and another ongoing project to improve hygiene, sanitation and access to safe water.
