Alan's Trip To Mombasa

Well Alan is now back home after spending two fantastic weeks in Mombasa. The trip was organised by the Charity Books Abroad and whilst their the group distributed books to help with literacy projects in the area.

Books Abroad believes that, in the long term, education is what is required to help solve the worlds problems. With the power to read and write, the children of today will have a better understanding of the issues surrounding them.

Whilst there he visited orphanages & schools and helped teach some of the classes maths and geography. He also played football with the children & obtained first hand a better understanding of what it is like to live in a much less affluent society.
