Weʼve raised £20 to help fund my volunteering in Ecuador for their care and community project.
- Funded on Sunday, 14th May 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Starting in July I will be joining Projects Abroad to spend two weeks volunteering in Ecuador on a Care and Community short-term project.
Here is some information about the project from their website:
Situated 1000km from the Ecuadorian coast, the Galapagos Islands are well-known for its spectacular scenery and interesting wildlife. You have the opportunity to volunteer with Projects Abroad on our Care & Community Short-term Special project and spend two weeks living on the beautiful island of San Cristobal.
Education and learning English is vital for the children on the island and you will provide creative educational activities for them at one of the local kindergartens. You will assist the teachers and provide extra attention to individual children.
The project also has a community aspect, where you will work alongside other volunteers on physical improvements, such as painting one of the classrooms or helping with a beach clean-up initiative.
I’m choosing to volunteer through an organisation called Projects Abroad. Projects Abroad was established in 1992 as a volunteer English-teaching programme in Eastern Europe and has since grown to offer a wide range of opportunities in volunteering, internships, and language courses in over 25 destinations around the globe. I will be joining a community of well over 50,000 volunteers past and present that have lent their time and effort to giving back around the world.
I have covered the costs of my flights to and from Ecuador however I need to fundraise for my community programme work. Even a small amount will get me one step closer to my goal. Thank you in advance for any support you can give.
