A teacher from Harrogate is to travel to Africa to take part in a social action project in Rwanda and Sierra Leone.
Anne Creen, who works as a supply teacher for the whole of North Yorkshire, will join over 100 volunteers in Project Umubano, a social action project with the Conservative Party.
Volunteers will put to use their wide range of skills and experience to work across key areas of health, business, education, community, planning, justice and sport throughout each country for two weeks.
Volunteers pass on their expertise through their partners on the ground, allowing their work to continue to have a lasting benefit after returning home.
Local teacher, Anne Creen, from Roseville Avenue, said: “This will be an incredible and hugely worthwhile project and I am really looking forward to taking part.
“It is a chance to roll up my sleeves and use my experience working on the education project alongside Rwandans to help this developing country and some of the poorest people in the world.”
