The Jane Goodall Award for Individual Endeavour is sponsored this year by gap year and overseas volunteering organisation Quest Overseas. The winner of this award will be invited to join a Quest Overseas’ team on one of their summer projects in South America or Africa.
Options include the chance to work with rescued wild animals in the Bolivian Amazon, helping to build homes for single mothers in the Peruvian shanty town of Villa Maria or giving a new home to street children from Kigali, Rwanda.
All programme costs in country are covered by the award, a trip worth around £2,000. The only costs which the winner will need to cover is their international flight, and any pocket money for personal expenses.
