12 Days in 2012

On the 6th October 2012 eight wonderful young people from North Berwick Youth Project, North Berwick, Scotland left their small sea side town for an adventure of a life time. Their leaders Lauren Cowie, Leanne Ingle, Laura Neild and Kari Spence had chosen to undertake the challenge of supporting a school Bugesera region Rwanda. Their journey had begun some 8 months earlier with planning and fundraising events galore and not to forget the barrage of injects against all manner of strange tropical diseases.
