Meet ICS volunteer Naseem in a 360 video
Discover life on an ICS placement: 360° video
Naseem spent 12 weeks in Kenya volunteering with ICS. Using 360 degree technology, this video gives a unique insight into some of the amazing things he did on placement - compared to what he might have been doing back home.

Do you know someone aged 18-25 who would like to make a difference like Naseem? We’re looking for 1,000 young people to join our overseas placements in January and February 2018.
Please share the video with your family and friends and help us spread the word.
