Hi! I'm a special needs teacher working in Cornwall at a special needs school. Anyone who knows me will know how passionate I am about my job and the pupils I support and teach.
I have the amazing opportunity to volunteer and support a special needs orphanage in Peru for 2-3 weeks in the summer break!
My roles will include sharing ideas and resources, making resources, providing care, physical therapy, education, vocational skills-development, recreation and stimulation and working 1:1 with the pupils. My role will be to work closely alongside the staff to promote better health and wellbeing outcomes, while supporting them to engage in a cross-cultural learning exchange for the people I'll be working with and caring for.
On top of this I would loooooove to put together a suitcase of resources (therapy equipment, sensory toys, visual communication aids) to take with me to give to the orphanage.
I need your help to make this dream a reality! Any small donation you can make is one more resources I can take with me for the children out there. I want to do everything I can to make the most difference I can.
Just one smile....just one pupil helped....at a time...will make such a difference.
Please give what you can and support me on this amazing adventure :)
UPDATE: Everyone who is able to donate will have a ticket put in a raffle and the winning ticket will win a little box of goodies (e.g. chocolate, wine)
