Mr Owens, Headmaster at Salesian College Farnborough, reflects on the impact of his students visiting Zambia.
Today at Salesian College Farnborough our new set of student leaders were appointed to serve the College over the next 12 months.
Both the outgoing College Captain, Brian Solomon and the Head Girl, Sophie Kwist in their speeches specifically talked about the transformative experience of visiting Zambia as Share the Light advocates in 2018.
It makes one aware that by being with the people in need, in Zambia not just hearing about it, young people will be more determined to demand change and have the fire in their bellies to do something about it.
I am very grateful that the Salesian network from Farnborough, Barcelona and Zambia have made the world feel that bit smaller and that Share the Light will enable it to be that bit better as well.
