Pendle Goes International
The Overseas Programme is a great opportunity for you to travel abroad for three weeks to China, Ghana, India or Malaysia with other Lancaster University students in late August/early September 2014. Allowing you to engage with businesses, political interaction, academic and community development work as well. All details can be found here:
This programme has a range of fantastic opportunities for any student to take part in… an international cultural programme, interacting with students studying at one of Lancaster University’s
partner institutes around the world. Travel to an amazing areas of the world and experience a true change and exposure to a new exciting environment. Talk to businesses and Politian’s about the impact they have upon the environment and see the work they are doing to counteract this.
The College has a small pot of money to distribute to Pendle participants on the 2014 LUSU Overseas Programme. All applications received by 1st June will be considered. Please write a letter of application to Pendle Principal, Roger Gould, setting out what you hope to learn from your trip and why a small Pendle grant will help you. Please email this application to Jill in the College Office (firstname.lastname@example.org). Some applications have already been received and successful candidates will be notified by Wednesday, 4th June.
There will also be opportunities closer to home, to help with Pendle’s long-term Charity: Stepping Stones Nigeria. This works to get abandoned children off the streets, find them a safe environment and proper meals, and give them a school, education. It’s a charity right at Pendle’s heart – children are often abandoned because they’re accused of witchcraft – even tiny babies – and, of course, the history of Pendle is associated with the Lancaster Witch Trials of 1662.
Think you might want to be involved?
Pendle will try to help you with all of these. And when the Pendle student volunteers return, you’ll get to hear from them why you should get involved and how to work with them, if you want to go. They’ll be helping to manage next year’s Pendle volunteers!
