Bailey Bingham of Port Elgin, Saugeen Shores, is about to set off on an adventure when she leaves with a group of teens for Kenya, Africa.

As a Grade 11 teen volunteer with 'Me to We', Bingham will be joining more than 25 North American teens aged 14 to 18, who are going to the Masai district of Kenya to take part in building a school.  Bingham is the only student from this region.

"It's part of the 'Free the Children' movement," explains Bingham, "and we'll be gone for 21 days." 

The group will fly from Toronto to Montreal and then on to Zurich, Switzerland before going on to Africa.

Bingham is not only a volunteer but she is also a hard worker holding down three jobs, including at the Port Elgin Veterinary Clinic and Lakeshore Recreation Centre.

She is hopeful that she can raise some funds to help out with the trip and also to take some school supplies with her for the young students in Kenya.
