I will be volunteering in Nicaragua this summer with Growth International Volunteer Excursions (GIVE). Volunteering with local communities is something that I have always wanted to do therefore I am so excited for this oppertunity.
GIVE focuses on sustainable community development in marginalised communities by assisting, educating, and empowering the local population. The core goal is to provide communities with necessary infrastructure to foster sustainable growth. I will be directly involved in building eco-friendly infrastructure out of recycled materials, teaching English and tutoring to children, protecting endangered sea turtles, and organising extracurricular activities for children. GIVE continues to remain involved in these communities after volunteers like me have left Nicaragua. GIVE works within these communities year round to provide opportunities for sustainable development by funding teachers to work in the secondary school and funding doctors to provide medical care in these communities.
The cost of the trip to volunteer is expensive and considering I am now a student at university, I would greatly appreciate as many donations as possible to help me serve others this summer! Your contribution will go directly to the cost for me to volunteer mainly including the materials and costs associated with the volunteer projects.
Between now and Easter next year I will organise some fundraising events which I will keep you up to date with however If you could please also donate via this GoFundMe page in the mean time then that would also be greatly appreciated.
Help spread the word!
