Gemma's Borneo Expedition.
My 14 year old daughter has a passion for animals and the natural world. Following a talk at school, she and others have been invited to take part in a Camps International expedition to Borneo in the Summer of 2019.
The trip is 4 weeks long, during which Gemma and her chums will undertake a range of humanitarian and conservations projects. These range from building school class rooms to replanting the jungle to preserve orangutan habitat to costal clean-up to help sea turtles. It's hard work, but the pay off for Gemma is some jungle adventure and the chance to gain a PADI Scuba qualification. All of this is valuable experience for Gemma for her chosen career path.
To achieve this, Gemma has to raise the cost of the expedition which is £4350. The cost covers all aspects of the expedition from travel to security, with 35-40% of the total cost incorporated into the projects undertaken whilst Gemma is in Borneo.
Please help us get Gemma to Borneo, it would mean the world to her.
Additional funds can also be raised (at NO expense to you) via online shopping - please go to the following page and join up as well:

I'm Gemma's mum and trying to help her achieve her dream of going on a trip to Borneo in 2019. Gemma is not outgoing, so this will be a tough trip for her, but she's adamant she's going so, so am I!
