Story

In July 2017, I am going to Sri Lanka for three weeks. This trip is being run through my college by Travelteer uk. During those three weeks i will be helping to improve the local environment and to assist young people in improving their English language skills. During the first week, i will be travelling from coast to coast to learn about the country and its culture. In the second week, i will be helping the environment in Sri Lanka in a number of ways: working in an animal hospital to rehabilitate injured animals, replanting trees in the rainforest, helping in a turtle hatchery to release baby turtles into the sea and doing a beach and river clean up. In the third week i will be participating in an English language development programme where i will be helping local children tolearn and improve their language skills. During that week I shall be doing afterschool teaching, in-class assisting, lesson planning and community projects.

This will be an incredible, educational experience of a lifetime and I am seeking support by way of donations via this page and other fund-raising activities I shall be undertaking over the next few months. The money raised will be donated to Travelteer Impact, a non-profit charity supporting the above projects in Sri Lanka and some will go towards my flights to enable me to get there.

Thank you for very much for any kind donations that you make.
