Guest speaker was Matthew Coombes to tell us about his experiences whilst carrying out voluntary work in East Africa for 'Education Partnerships Africa'

We were delighted to welcome Matthew Coombes to our meeting as guest speaker this evening. Matthew is from Washington and studies at Cambridge University. Last summer, Washington Forge Rotary supported his involvement in project work with the charity 'Education Partnerships Africa'. EPA work with rural communities in East Africa to improve the quality of secondary education, and to enable talented university students from the UK to experience grassroots international development and provide them with the awareness, knowledge and skills to become leaders of the future. Matthew spoke enthusiastically about the specific sustainable projects he had been involved with in a school in the Mbarara District of Uganda. #makeadifference
