My name is Hannah Chambers, and in 2016, I was selected by the charity Project Trust to take part in the incredible opportunity of going on a 12 month overseas teaching placement in India. As it is for a year I will be able to fully immerse myself in the culture and the community.
This means that in August 2017 I will be flying to India as a Project Trust volunteer!
I am blogging about this experience to take you on my journey from start to end.
