Bio: 
Hello, My name is Melody Waterworth, I am 18 and have a passion for travel and international development: It started when I was 17 and went to Tanzania, this was my first time exploring a completely different place to England. I climbed Kilimanjaro while there and this embedded my need for travel and adventure, later that year I then spent a month solo travelling Thailand and in September 2015 I will be spending 3 months volunteering with International service in Ghana. I hope to spend the next 5 or so years travelling and volunteering working on local projects and feeling like i'm making a difference at a grass root level. My work in Ghana will be based around Disability, however my passions for volunteering are Animals, sustainability and green ventures, Education and young people, and reducing extreme poverty. I am happy to try any project as I really enjoy to get stuck in to what I'm doing and be out of my comfort zone. However money is a problem and I cannot participate in more expensive programmes, I am happy to have basic accomodation including camping or basic huts.
Volunteering Experience: 
I have done lots of volunteering at home, including being a founding member of a youth town council; organising and running local events to encourage participation such as battle of the bands competitions. I have also given up time to work on protesting the youth service cuts in my country which seeked to close youth clubs across the country. I have also volunteered time do leafletting. While in Tanzania I spent a few days with children in the orphanage, helping with meal times and being a general helping adult. In Ghana I spent 12 weeks working with disabled people in Tamale, running sensitisation projects in schools, helping run sporting events and the groups, and securing funding for disabled sporting groups.
