Congratulations to Shelby and Alicia, our 'Experience Nepal'
Shelby and Alicia have been selected from 21 applicants to
undertake a 14 day volunteer placement in Nepal with Aussie Action
Abroad in July 2017.
The scholarships are offered by City of Ballarat in partnership
with Aussie Action Abroad with the aims to support and empower
young people to lead by example and to provide a range of learning
and development opportunities through volunteering.
Shelby and Alicia will have the opportunity to work alongside
local Nepali organisations on community development projects and
live among local Nepali communities, also learning about Nepal's
rich culture and heritage.
In the lead up to the expedition, the scholarship recipients
will undertake fundraising efforts that will go towards supporting
local community development projects in Nepal.
Upon their return they will continue their work in the Ballarat
community, sharing their experiences of Nepal and promoting
volunteerism to other Ballarat youth and the broader Ballarat
community on various public events.

program, please contact Katja Fiedler on 5320 5186 or email
