Into the wild: Hannah fundraises for wildlife conservation project

December 04, 2020

RSK CAD Technician Hannah Geddes has signed up to take part in a wildlife conservation project that will see her looking after endangered lions and giraffes in the Kenyan savannah and engaging in community outreach projects across the region.

“I have been working as an apprentice for RSK’s Land and Development Engineering (LDE) team in Coventry, UK, for nearly four years. I am currently in the second year of my apprenticeship degree at Coventry University and I am loving it! Throughout my time at RSK, I have gained a better understanding of the environment and more appreciation for its wildlife.

“With all this inspiration, I have decided to take part in a wildlife conservation project in Kenya that will involve tracking and looking after an endangered species of giraffe and lions in the savannah. During my time there I will also be conducting community outreach projects, such as planting trees, installing eco-stoves and educating children on the importance of protecting the environment. My aim is to try to help to educate local children and protect the environment and wildlife for future generations to enjoy.

“My project starts in April 2021 and will last for three weeks. Throughout my time in Africa I will be learning new skills, expanding my knowledge of local cultures and gaining experiences that will be once in a lifetime. 

“I am choosing to volunteer through an organisation called Projects Abroad. Projects Abroad was established in 1992 as a volunteer English-teaching programme in Eastern Europe and has since grown to offer a wide range of opportunities in volunteering, internships, and language courses in over 25 destinations around the world. I will be joining a community of well over 50,000 volunteers past and present that have lent their time and effort to giving back around the world.

“This experience is unpaid, and I will need to cover costs for things like flights, the Projects Abroad programme fee, vaccinations and a visa. I plan to contribute a significant portion of my own funds to this project; however, I am also fundraising and relying on the help of my friends, family, and my RSK work colleagues.”

If you would like to support Hannah, you can donate via her Project Abroad fundraising page (minimum online donation of £15), or through her GoFundMe page. Thank you in advance for any support you can give.
