Students embark on journey to Delhi for overseas experience 

CQUniversity Mackay's Melinda Haack and Naomi Hodgson will join a team of 10 Bachelor of Learning Management students who will make the journey to Delhi tomorrow (Saturday, January 12) to provide support to the less fortunate.

The Mackay students have been busy fundraising and will take $1475 to donate towards Saalam Baalak - a trust which provides support services for children in difficult circumstances.

The students will gain course credit while they help street children gain an education.
