I decided to call the Fresh Beginnings Refugee Centre after I heard at a barbeque that they were seeking volunteers. The director invited me to meet him, and he mentioned that he had a serious problem finding teachers to attend on a regular basis. At first, I thought about posting fliers around campus, but then I realized the VTeam could help me set up a proper programme. The director of Fresh Beginnings, the VTeam, and I had a meeting and we decided it was a great idea.

I asked Gisselle to be Vice President and four of my friends to be Project Managers of the Refugee Teaching Programme. Together we set up a stall at Freshers Fair and got 210 signatures! Throughout the year, our 46 student volunteers assisted in teaching English and Maths classes, running a women’s group, and raising charity money for school supplies. Thanks to the enormous efforts of the Refugee Teaching Programme team, we provided 530 volunteer hours in our first year. And over two years, we provided a total of 1,100 hours, recruited 108 students, and raised £300. This life-changing experience was all made possible thanks to the VTeam’s fantastic assistance and guidance.
