A REDDITCH teenager is taking on the challenge of a lifetime to help children in the third world.
Oakenshaw resident Stephen Browett is aiming to raise £2,450 by July 9, with half going to children in impoverished areas of the world including Bangladesh, India and
Tanzania and the other half funding a trip to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
The 19-year-old, who studies at Aberystwyth University, will fly out to Africa on August 20, returning three weeks later.
He said: "I decided to get involved when I saw my university was supporting this charity called Childreach International and were encouraging students to sign up for this challenge event to raise money for them.
"I soon found out about all the work Childreach has done in some of the poorest third world countries and so felt this was a cause worthy of me putting above other charities and doing something I've never done before.
"I cannot wait to meet some of the children my money will help and see first hand how my money is being used."
