I am an extremely sensitive person, and love to do everything I can in order to help others. I have chosen to set out on a 3 week expedition to the Southeast Asian country of Vietnam. We will trek, volunteer and make memories that will last a lifetime. I want to make a difference to those in need who live in Vietnam, and really make a change to their lives.
It would be easy to simply raise money for a chosen cause in Vietnam and send the money over, but I really want to make a change on a more personal level. That is why I have chosen to fly out to Vietnam myself and see how much of a change me and my team can make in just three weeks.
The difference will be seen by the people who surround me, my friends, family, peers etc. I will hopefully also make a difference to those living in Vietnam. "The majority of projects in Vietnam are community based and involve taking part in construction and renovation at care homes and orphanages for disadvantaged children. Challengers may well become totally immersed in a very friendly Vietnamese community, assisting with some informal English teaching" - World Challenge website.
The trip is not the cheapest, which is quite evident by my target value. We pay for everything ourselves, flights, kit, accommodation. When we arrive in our destination we will use our funds to purchase food, train tickets as well as putting ourselves up in hostels; maybe even staying with locals.
