Teen joins charity project in Zambia
A PEVERELL teenager is working with a charity in Zambia to teach young people about safe sex.
Jacob Powell, 18, teamed up with youth charity Restless Development to help reduce the effects of sexually transmitted diseases in the African country.
He left for Zambia in January for the three-month project, which is part of the Government's International Citizen Service scheme encouraging 18 to 25-year-olds to volunteer for one of six charities.
Jacob was challenged to raise £800 for Restless Development, which he did with a series of events and concerts throughout December and January.
