Ivana Rose is on her way to Burkina Faso this January, to spend 12 weeks volunteering with local people on a project to fight poverty.

Ivana hopes to contribute significantly to this development project, before continuing her studies in the field of Public International Law in hopes of starting a career in the field of international development. Ivana is currently on a gap year after completing her undergraduate Law degree. She attended Buckswood School and lives locally in Sedlescombe.

She says: “I’m really excited to go to Burkina. I’ve already raised over £800 for the charity so I can’t wait to see the difference International Service makes within the community first hand and contribute on a more personal level.

“This is a great opportunity to work on a sustainable development project that will make a genuine difference to the lives of some of the world’s most marginalised people. I encourage other young people to apply to the scheme”.

Prime Minister, David Cameron, has endorsed the scheme, saying: “The service will create thousands of international development champions, bringing together young people from all walks of life. Find out more at and to donate visit
