AN Atwell resident taking part in a university leadership program is using the opportunity to fund a sexual health program in Thailand.

Thirty Curtin University students have been selected in the John Curtin Leadership Academy for their potential to take command and commitment to social change.

Tiffany Verga (18) is in a team of six preparing to host a silent auction night and Thai-themed dinner in May.

Money raised will go towards supporting the Borderless Friendship Foundation WA’s Mooditj Sexual Health program, to run in Thailand later this year.

Ms Verga, a second year journalism and law student, said the goal was to raise $5000.

“We chose a charity which clicked with us,” she said.

“Because the program is based around training and we’re studying, we connected with that.”
