SKIP

SKIP (Students for Kids International Projects) is a national charity working with university students and overseas charity partnerships.

At Southampton, we send a team of volunteers out to rural villages in central Madagascar on a health promotion project. This project includes educating children in basic hygiene (sanitation, oral health, nutrition, malaria prevention and safe water), we also work with older children to promote sexual health, sustainability and gender equality.

The project takes place over the summer break over a 4 to 5 week period. Throughout the year, we hold training meetings in everything you need to know before you go out on project, socials for you to get to know your fellow volunteers and lots of fundraising events around campus! We are a student ran- student led charity, check out our team of dedicated and motivated committee and please email us with any questions, or contact us via our facebook and instagram page! .
