I'm also taking a Gap year

going to Tanzania for 6 months+ to do either a community resourse programme or health education programme with SPW, they're a really genuine organisation that seem to make a lot of sense (the promise not to send u over to paint a wall that a local could easily do), half their volunteers come from the country which sounds a lot better than a load of westerns imposing themselves

as for paying for it all, a gap year is 15 months, so i'll be a hard slog doing menial jobs for not much more than the minimum wage while i'm in England to fund it. Might dip into my savings tho.

Quite a few of my friends are taking one which means i won't be the only one not off to uni, that helps,

hope u enjoy urs!!!
