Story

Hello everyone, my name is Georgia and I am 14yrs old,

I have a great opportunity to take part in a Camps International expedition through school, to Costa Rica and Nicaragua in the summer of 2018. In Nicaragua, 48% of the population live in poverty and so I will be helping on a variety of social projects, helping to improve housing, sanitation and schooling. Costa Rica has a rich biodiversity and I will be working on some environmental projects whilst there too.
This is a huge deal for me, I have been volunteering all summer this year, which I feel has built my confidence and given me a lot of new experiences. I cannot wait for the adventure to begin, and to feel I am also making a contribution to these communities is brilliant.
The tricky part first though - I need to raise £4,000 to make the trip. Any help you can give would mean the world to me. I will also be inviting you to a number of events in the next 18 months.

Thank you in advance,

Georgia x

I am a volunteer for Royal Voluntary Service and regularly help at a Community Centre. I have really enjoyed my volunteering so far and was so excited to see this opportunity. I can't wait to start this expedition to both Costa Rica and Nicaragua!
