Bourne Grammar School pupil Samuel Hallam is travelling to Peru to teach children English
A Bourne teenager will be going on a volunteering experience of a lifetime when he travels to South America to teach children English.
Samuel Hallam, 17, who studies at Bourne Grammar School, will be going to Peru for two weeks in August.
Samuel, from Bourne, said: “I will be going to Peru for two weeks to teach English in schools to children who live in poverty.
“Furthermore, I will be providing them with resources that they might not be able to access.
“I will be based in an area of Lima [the capital city] call Pachacutec, where I want to give children who are less fortunate than us here in the UK memories for life as well as a better quality of living.
“All the money raised will go directly to the children, who wake up every morning to the fear of gang violence and poverty.
“Despite areas of Peru having recently thrived under a growing economy, much of the population are still victim to the injustices and poverty of what can be such a beautiful country in places.”
Samuel is studying A-levels at Bourne Grammar in Spanish, Business and Religous Studies.
He also has a Mexican girlfriend so has been able to practice his Spanish for well over a year.
