A student from the University of East Anglia is planning to spend eight weeks helping underprivileged communities in Africa.

International development student Luis Nastili will spend his summer holiday in the plains of Kenya, helping disabled children to have access to better schooling and to improve their basic skills.

The 20-year-old said: 'It has always been a passion of mine to change the world. This summer I will be volunteering with the Voluntary Service Overseas and attempting to instigate some of this much-needed global change in communities.

'In order for me to embark on this incredible adventure I need the support of as many people as possible in a bid to raise £800.

'Going to school and engaging in self-development is a basic human need and the aim of my time in Kenya is to ensure people can access and benefit from an education.'
