My story

Year Ten students from Portland School and Specialist College in Blythe Bridge, Stoke on Trent, are busying planning and preparing for the experience of a lifetime- constructing schools and teaching in The Gambia, Africa.

Portland School has teamed up with the charity Affecting Real Change, a grass roots charity that works with local communities and facilitates responsible volunteering in the developing world, to create an extraordinary opportunity for students with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. In the Spring of 2014, three students, two teachers and an ARC volunteer will spend a week in Gambia, learning valuable skills and helping create a better educational environment for hundreds of Gambian students.
