Bootcamp challenge for Botswana

FUN TIMES: Children in Botswana who stand to benefit from the fundraiser

LONDON-BASED Project Volunteer, a charity that takes volunteers out to Botswana each year to engage with the children of three orphanages and help develop their resources, has announced its first ever ‘Bootcamp Challenge’, which will take place in Stratford, east London at 9am on Saturday July 1.

Bootcamp Challenge will be an intensive training session filled with fun, prizes and goodies, allowing participants to push themselves as far as they can whilst at the same time raising money to make a difference to the lives of hundreds of orphaned children in Botswana.

Katie Jackson, Chair of Project Volunteer said:

“What better motivation to get fit for the summer holidays than to train with like-minded people and whilst making a difference to children’s lives?”

The one hour bootcamp session will take place at Chobham Academy in Stratford and will include team challenges, exercise tyres, body circuits and kettlebells, all under the expert supervision of Tamika Small (Nike+ Training Club trainer) and Obi Ohuruogu, Athletic Performance Coach.

Bring the whole family along to watch and support, or do it solo and make friends along the way. It will be a vibrant, energetic and fun atmosphere that is sure to make you sweat!


GETTING STUCK IN: Activities taking place in Botswana


ARTS AND CRAFTS: Children getting creative in Botswana


WORKING TOGETHER: A group of volunteers

The participants are asked to help fundraise for Project Volunteer, all of which will go towards valuable projects to help the children in Botswana.

Everyone will also have an opportunity to find out more about Project Volunteer and the work that it does.

“We have been taking groups of volunteers out to Botswana for over ten years now. Our volunteers give up 10 days of their valuable time to create smiles and engage with children who have been orphaned, in many cases due to the HIV epidemic that still haunts Botswana. We find that, for many, this is the start of a wider volunteering journey and on returning to the UK they then start volunteering in their own communities”.
