AMELIA Titchard – head girl at Warrington’s Sir Thomas Boteler CE High School – has just returned from Kenya working with young people there.
She was accompanied by her sister, former Boteler pupil Abigail and they travelled with the Young Trustees, a group of 12-21 year-olds who work as part of the Warrington Wolves Foundation to support their community projects and provide a youthful presence in the Foundation’s work.
The Youth Trustees’ work in Kenya is part of a 10-year project to create a long lasting legacy and enhancement in education in Magadi.
The young people were able to witness the contrast between education in the UK and in Kenya and to identify key areas in which the foundation can offer support.
They were able to provide donations and food and other support such as pens and paper to help progress education in multiple schools.
The youngsters were also able to offer personal support, leading classes on sport, English and maths.
Amelia said: “Through this work we ensured that the Memusi Foundation can continue providing vital education of life skills to the young people of Magadi.”
Boteler head teacher Beverley Scott-Herron said: “We are very proud of Amelia and Abigail. They are incredibly inspirational young women and excellent ambassadors for The Young Trustees.”
