REALISING JUST HOW LUCKY I AM TO BE GROWING UP IN LYMINGTON AND THE UK, I’M EXCITED TO PUT SOMETHING BACK BY DOING SOMETHING FOR OTHERS MUCH LESS FORTUNATE THAN MYSELF.
I’VE SIGNED UP FOR A TWO WEEK TRIP TO KENYA ORGANISED BY MY SCHOOL PRIESTLANDS SCHOOLIN THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS 2019.
THIS EXCITING TRIP OF A YOUNG LIFETIME WILL ENABLE ME TO GET INVOLVED WITH VOLUNTEER WORK WHERE IT WILL MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE TO REAL PEOPLE. THIS WORK WILL BE IN BUILDING, REPAIRING BUILDINGS, VISITING A SCHOOL EVERY DAY AND HELP TO TEACH ENGLISH. PERHAPS ALSO LEARNING SOME SWAHILI MYSELF! OUR VISIT WILL ALSO ENABLE THE GROUP TO DONATE VARIOUS ITEMS OF MUCH NEEDED EQUIPMENT TO THE KENYAN CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE AND THUS SHARE OUR LIVES AND TALENTS AND INTERESTS WITH THEM. I HAVE A FEELING THAT WHILST WE COME FROM SUCH DIFFERENT COUNTRIES AND BACKGROUNDS, WE WILL FIND WE ARE SO VERY MUCH ALIKE!
I’M VERY EXCITED AND THRILLED TO HAVE THIS WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY AND KNOW IT WILL BE HARD BUT IMMENSELY REWARDING WORK. IT WILL DIRECTLY BENEFIT OTHERS GREATLY AND WILL BE AN EXPERIENCE I WILL TREASURE ALL MY LIFE.
I CAN’T WAIT FOR NEXT SUMMER TO COME! IT WILL BE THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME FOR ME AND A GREAT CHANCE TO HELP OTHERS LESS FORTUNATE THAN MYSELF. IT WILL ALLOW ME TO EXPERIENCE A TOTALLY DIFFERENT CULTURE AND SHARE IN THE KENYAN OUTLOOK AND VALUES.
I HAVE TO RAISE A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF FUNDING STARTING NOW SO I’M PLANNING A NUMBER OF FUNDRAISING EFFORTS BEFORE SUMMER 2019. CAN YOU HELP?
