United Kingdom

A group of students are swapping books for bricks as they take part in a three-week aid trip to India. Twelve pupils from Stowe School will take part in Project India volunteering to help build hospitals and orphanages as well as spending time teaching the children these projects will support.

Eighteen-year-old Hattie French, from Swanbourne, was inspired to get involved after the charity gave a presentation at the independent boarding school. She said: “I am really looking forward to this exciting challenge.
