Volunteer on the Conservative Party's International Social Action Project in Africa this Summer

Dear Supporter,

We would like to invite you to take part in this year’s Conservative International Social Action project in Africa, during summer recess. It marks the tenth anniversary of the project. We have taken part in the project over many years and Jeremy, together with Wendy Morton MP, led last year’s legal and community teams to Sierra Leone.

Over many years our social action project, known as Project Umubano, has served as a powerful demonstration of the Conservative Party’s commitment to social action and international development. By drawing on the wide range of professional skills and experience at all levels of our Party, our teams of volunteers have been able to make a modest but lasting difference working alongside partners in Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Burundi.

Several hundred Conservative Party members have taken part over the last decade including many MPs, Councillors and Parliamentary Candidates.

The Project will run from 21th July – 30th July 2017 in Sierra Leone. Teams of self-funded volunteers will offer programmes in Business, Health, Law, and Community Work. There will also be a project in Rwanda led by Rt Hon. Andrew Mitchell MP from 5-13th August 2017.

If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering with one of the project teams then please contact Theo Clarke, Director of CFID, mail@cfid.org.uk for Sierra Leone and Alessia, alessia.dini@parliament.uk in Andrew Mitchell's office, for Rwanda to be sent further information.

Best wishes,

Jeremy Lefroy MP and Theo Clarke
