Quotes

This project [building a youth centre in Romania] has taught me numerous skills and knowledge, from the best way to get bent nails out of wood to exactly how buildings do stand up. I has been a great summer, despite the aching muscles, constant muddiness and queues for the shower and I can’t wait to go back out next summer and do it all again.

Emma Bush, Edinburgh University, 2006

When applying for the award please bear in mind that we would like either a written report outlining your experience once you return (minimum of 500 words with lots of images) or a blog whilst you are travelling (with at least four entries of 250 words and plenty of pictures).
