Julianna's Dream

A Hethersett teenager has a dream – to help under- privileged children in Uganda. 

Julianna Ball, who is 17 and lives in The Crescent, is looking to raise over £4,000 in sponsorship to enable her to travel to the African country to work on social projects with children for 12 months. 

Julianna is currently in her final year at Notra Dame High School in Norwich where she is studying for A levels in health and social care, biology and geography. 

She has a keen interest in working with children and especially those with special educational needs and is hoping eventually to go to university to take a degree in primary education, specialising in this area. 

Over the years Julianna has also developed a keen interest in developing countries, having been born in Zimbabwe. 

“I would love to have the chance to go to the continent of my birth. I would also love the chance to help and work in Uganda to make a small difference to the community,” she said. 

Julianna’s aim is to spend a year in Uganda helping with social projects for children and also including an element of teaching, music and crafts. She is hoping to do this under the banner of the Project Trust, an educational registered charity which was founded in 1967 and which has already sent 4,000 young volunteers aged between 17 and 19 to projects in 24 countries. 

“Project Trust’s aim is to provide an educational experience through living and working with people in countries very different to those in which we have grown up,” Julianna added. 

To turn her dreams into reality, Julianna has to raise £4,190. She already has a number of fund-raising projects lined-up including selling cakes and jam, a sponsored swim and the possibility of organising a concert in Hethersett in the spring. Julianna is a member of the Broadland Youth Choir.
