In 2017, I have decided to volunteer during the Summer and travel to Nepal with an organisation called LRTT (Limited Resources Teacher Training) with the aim of enabling local teachers out there to improve the quality of education for children and young people. I will head out with a team of 23 other teachers from the UK to deliver teacher training in the hope that it will empower and enthuse the teachers in Nepal to be able to teach great content in fun and inspiring ways … not easy when there is often more than 50 children per class and very limited resources – even paper!
As such, I wanted to fund raise for the partner charity linked to LRTT called ‘Inspiring Futures’. As a fun way of raising the profile of the charity, I decided to walk a mere 84 miles along the Hadrian’s Wall National Trial during April.
Due to walking along a Roman wall and needing to add some fun to such an enduring task, I needed an appropriate travel buddy so Max the Roman Soldier was introduced to me. He will continue to be my travel partner in Nepal and beyond.
Max will have his own space on this site in the ‘Max Moments‘ page tab at the top of this section.
