Howard Lake | 21 April 2004 | News

International children’s charity Save the Children has offered its support and endorsement for the campaign that works to motivate young people to do more for charity.

Save the Children is offering children from one winning school at this year’s G-Nation Awards the chance to experience a Save the Children-funded youth project in India.

The Awards are designed to inspire schools to take part in G-Week (26 June – 2 July), when hundreds of schools across the UK reflect on the value and impact of their
past year’s charity-related work and/or participate in charitable activities.

Andrew Hutchinson, Head of Education at Save The Children, said: “The journey to India will provide real insights into how a major charity works with children and young people with far fewer life chances than their
peers from the UK, whilst enjoying a lot in common. The visit will deepen understanding of how, by working together, young lives can be fundamentally changed.”

The closing date for the awards is 12 July 2004 and the awards ceremony is in
October.
