Helen Young is a Christian Aid teacher in Kent
Helen became a Christian Aid supporter as a teenager. In 2007, she had the opportunity to see our work first hand in Kenya as part of her gap year. Seeing how our partners work strengthened her commitment as a supporter, and last year she began offering her time as a volunteer teacher.
Helen is a full-time youth worker, but she fits in visiting schools for Christian Aid around her flexible hours. She leads primary school assemblies and has recently started helping to take lessons.
Helen loves working with children, and believes that from an early age they are aware that the world is unfair and want to do something about it.
Being a Christian Aid teacher is helping her develop new skills, while living out her faith and being part of the solution to injustice in the world.
