Hey, My name is Katie, I am 25 years old.
I am raising money to go to Mexico next year to volunteer, do an internship over there for 24 weeks.
The internship will be me working with children and animals. I will go into that in a second.
I have chosen to do the internship, volunteer for GVI as they are a responsible organisation. They are working with Save he Children on one of the projects. :
Now about the internship, there are 3 different community development projects, 2 are based with children and he third is with animals. For the first 12 weeks i will be rotating between the projects 3 partners. Then after that I will decide which project to stay with for the last 12 weeks.
"At the Save the Children, you will be helping the children with their homework, playing games and preparing educational resources. . A lot of the work focuses on teaching the children how to stay safe, from being able to identify different forms of violence to delivering general health and safety measures and precautions, such as during severe weather.
When working with children who have special needs you will be assisting staff at The Equine Therapy Centre as well as in the physical and aqua therapy sessions held at different venues around Playa del Carmen. You will also have the opportunity to visit the local special needs school and gain experience assisting the local teachers.
On the animal care side, you can expect to be involved in the veterinarian surgeries; receiving and delivering cats and dogs; assisting in the refuge recovery area by playing and taking care of the animals, general grooming; doing surveys; implementing animal welfare workshops in the community or supporting and raising animal welfare awareness in the local communities through various initiatives."
The money raised will go towards the cost of the internship.
I do understand that it is quite a lot of money, but I also believe that this is going to be an experience I will remember my whole life.
Again, thank you
