Hi, my name is Harry and for as long as I can remember I have wanted to visit Peru and in particular Machu Picchu. I have an amazing opportunity to go to Peru with Camps International for four weeks in summer 2019 and travel to various locations in the country to carry out humanitarian projects, for example building a new school, communal greenhouse for vegetables or creating irrigation for nearby farms and houses to help combat hunger and malnutrition. I love the idea of making a difference to people's lives and hate to see people, especially children, less well off than we are. Not only will I be helping them, it will help me develop a wide range of skills that I can put into practice in the future.
One thing I am looking forward to after a hard day's work is socialising with the locals and learning about their culture, or challenging the children to a sports match.
I hope you will agree to support me in raising my own funds to take part in this amazing life changing adventure and thank you for the time you have spent in looking at my page. I am grateful for any support no matter how small.
