Camps International - volunteering trip to Peru 2019
Over 50% of the rural communities in Peru live below the poverty line. This expedition will focus on improving the quality of life for many Peruvian communities through raising educational standards and living conditions, plus assisting with wildlife conservation to help preserve biodiversity and protect vulnerable habitats.
At a personal level it will also help me develop some valuable life lessons and skills, including self confidence, leadership, personal organisation and team working. I’m particularly keen to develop a better appreciation of what I’m lucky to have (and maybe take for granted), plus what strengths and values I can learn from others who live in a very different way to me.
This experience in Peru will be different to anything I’ve ever done before and I’m looking forward to it with a mix of excitement and nervousness. The bugs and insects will be a particular challenge I think!
The total cost of this trip is £4400 and I’m 75% of the way there through a combination of:
- selling toys (sad to say goodbye to my lego sets!)
- car boot sales
- charity cake sales
- carol singing
- donating my own christmas and birthday money
- donations from local businesses
I just need a little more help to get me to my total and any support you can give will be very gratefully received.
