We are very happy to announce that Vodaphone World of Difference has awarded 3 individuals funding to spend time working for TCW over the coming months to help develop projects and further our reach.
The World of Difference UK programme gives 500 people each year the chance to work for their dream charity, and get paid. Over the years they have helped hundreds of people donate their skills and experience to the charities of their choice.
TCW is delighted to have been chosen by 3 individuals as their charity of choice. Our winners this year are Tom Steddall, William Lee and Jenny Stanley-Smith.
Tom will be working on the completion of the TCW Energy Hub – an online tool to help local authorities and community groups understand their energy consumption, costs and CO2 emissions.
“I am delighted to once again have this opportunity to work for the charity with whom I have become so involved over the last few years. This placement will allow me to continue our innovative work in online mapping of UK energy consumption.” Tom Stedall
William will be working with scout groups across Bristol to engage the scouts in TCW’s Global Citizens Programme. The programme aims to develop a network of young leaders and the learning and activities are centred around social and environmental themes.
“I am extremely excited about the opportunity the WOD programme has given me to work with The Converging World promoting their work and educating young people about issues faced by their counter parts in South East Asia and how TCW are helping tackle issues of poverty through a sustainable approach.” William Lee
Jenny will be working on the Access to Affordable Energy Programme with a focus on solar PV. The Access to Affordable Energy Programme is our first village-scale renewable energy project. It aims to provide rural communities in Tamil Nadu, India with a reliable, affordable power source, helping to make them energy independent and more resilient.
“I’m over the moon that my application has got through and can’t wait to start working with TCW. I know it’s going to be an incredibly rewarding experience and look forward to learning lots and making an exciting project into a reality!” Jennifer Stanley-Smith
We will keep you up to date with the progress of these 3 projects here on our website and in our newsletter.
