Meet Gail, our new Youth and Student Intern

Gail Willows North East intern 2015/6July 2015

We are delighted to announce that from September 2015 Gail Willows joins us as the Collective Youth and Student Intern for the North East.

During her 10-month placement, Gail will work with youth groups, students and churches across the region to inspire them to take action to tackle poverty.

Meet Gail

Originally from Warwickshire, Gail moved to Exeter in 2010 to study for a degree in Sociology and French.

She spent her year abroad working with a France mission church in St Etienne doing everything from youth work to church admin and summer camps.

Since graduating she’s worked for a Christian environmental charity in France.

A message from Gail

‘I was really excited to be offered a place on the internship and am looking forward to visiting Christian Aid partners in Bangladesh and sharing the work of Christian Aid with the lovely young people here in the North East.’

Stories from Bangladesh

This autumn, Gail travels to Bangladesh for two weeks to see the work of our partners first hand.

She will meet some of the people who will feature in the resources for Christian Aid Week 2015 and will return with inspirational stories to engage young people.

Invite Gail to your group

Gail is available to visit youth groups, churches, schools and universities to speak about the work of Christian Aid and inspire young people to get involved and take action.


She can run workshops, lead discussions, give presentations and even play games around a variety of topics to educate and challenge your group to think more about their response to international development issues.
