Going to Bangladesh
My 18-year-old daughter has been offered a place with the International Citizen Service, the youth section of Volunteer Services Overseas.
She will leave in early May for 12 weeks to Bangladesh.
Although she doesn't know yet exactly were she will go and what the project will be, we are very excited for her. I am sure that it will be a great opportunity to spread her wings, see a bit of the world and understand how other people in other places live.
We have spent the last two days planning fund-raising events (she needs to raise £800 towards the cost), reading up and learning about Bangladesh and telling everybody our news.
My daughter's Just Giving page is here, and her blog 'There and Back again' can be found here.
I am sure more blogging on the trials and tribulations of letting your child go abroad will follow soon ...
