I’m Bella and I started volunteering at African Initiatives to gain experience in the international development field. I have learnt so much in the few months that I have been volunteering. I’ve been given a variety of different responsibilities and tasks. I have therefore developed loads of different skills and gained loads of knowledge which all looks great on my CV. As well as being grateful to African Initiatives for everything that they’ve taught me, I also feel very connected to the team and passionate about the work being carried out in Ghana and Tanzania. They are a really unique charity and an inspirational team.
