Seven graduates from Junior Leaders course number 15 have been awarded a John Thornton Young Achievers Award Bursary to help Patchworking Against Poverty on this years trip in August. The Junior Leader’s graduated on course number 15 this week, after a seven day ‘Test Week’ spent in the field experiencing amazing leadership training exercises and rather hefty endurance levels…although the weather was kind of good this week! The seven lucky individuals will be immersed into life in Kenya; putting the skills they have just honed over the last 9 months to good use and assist Laura with the work planned for the clinic. They will eat, sleep and live in Kissi for almost three weeks. We will be following their stay both here on the website and on our Facebook page.
