Three intrepid South West Volunteers are heading off to Kenya and Uganda this summer with the Netball Development Trust (NDT). They will spend three weeks in the countries, coaching over 1000 school children and supporting sexual health lessons and menstrual health lessons. The NDT Volunteers will also be handing out donated kit and sanitary products to schools. The volunteers heading out from the South West are Jenny Kelly- coach and the Devon NDO, Lili John- walking netball host from Totnes, Katrina Venner -teacher, coach and umpire from North Devon.
