I am raising money to make a difference to the lives of young children and families in St Lucia, South Africa. The money raised all goes towards the projects run on a two week volunteering trip in Africa. The program is multi-faceted and involves construction, conservation and education. More specifically, reconstruction and renovation of schools and creches to enable children a safe environment to learn, working with children in the schools and orphanage to teach English and basic sanitation, hygeine and nutrition through games and activities.
The volunteer work also includes helping to build sustainable farming facilities to allow for, in particular, single mothers to start a micro business and gain an income to support their families. This trip will allow me to be the change in people's lives. They deserve the same opportunities we do, I aim to help achieve this.
Another aspect, is to work with the national parks authority areas of conservation within the wetlands area in the observation, capture and release of crocodiles, and working with Cheetahs and Leopards in a rehabilitation, breeding and release program. These animals are in desperate need of help and I want to help change their future as a species.
All donations will go towards funding the project; purchasing materials and employing local skilled trades people to continue with the project once our time has come to an end. No money will be used for flights, accommodation costs etc as I will be paying that balance in advance.
So please, any small donation you can spare, I ask of you to support this great cause. To help change a life of those in desperate need, to help make lives full of opportunity, a helpless mother a competent supporter of her family, animals live the life of freedom they deserve. Because these families, children and animals deserve better lives and we can help create that for them.
Thank you, so much to everyone who has read my story and help change lives.
