LAB technician Becky Woodhouse is off to help people in India.
Becky, 26, from Birchencliffe, has a placed booked at Bradford College in September to train as a teacher.
Before that she will spend time working on a project in Bangalore.
She will work in a team of six volunteers for four months.
They will help with women's empowerment programmes, pre-school classes, adult literacy and a vocational training course.
Becky, who works in an NHS lab, said: "I'm really looking forward to my trip immensely. It's going to be very rewarding and extremely challenging.
"I'm really looking forward to getting there and getting involved in the projects and making a difference."
Becky attends Huddersfield Elim Pentecostal Church and is going to India with the Christian charity Tearfund.
A five-day orientation course covering health tips like how to use a mosquito net and avoid catching bugs overseas, has prepared her for the trip.
Tearfund's Transform programme enables Christians to spend from two weeks to four months working with the charity's local partners in Africa, Asia and Central and South America.
But Becky must raise £3,000 to go, so would appreciate any sponsorship no matter how small.
She can be contacted on 07837 701675.
