    Story

    This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to make a difference, I am donating my time and energy into volunteering overseas this summer. I would appreciate donations of any amount, which will enable me to participate in this vital community development program.

    I have been accepted on to the Volunteer Eco Students Abroad Program and will be travelling to Africa this year to take part in an important sustainable community development project. I am seeking sponsorship to enable me to participate in the program and complete essential volunteer work in an African village.

    I will be working with VESA in conjunction with the villagers and the village chief in addressing the major issues faced by the village and the local schools such as a lack of fresh running water, dilapidated schools and generally poor infrastructure. Your donation will help to facilitate the means for implementing a major community development project, which will encompass construction in addition to educating the community on matters of conservation, sustainability, health/hygiene and English proficiency.

    By sponsoring me, you will be directly assisting with the costs involved in participating in the program. These costs are significant and include hiring local skilled trades people to supervise and assist in the building projects, building materials and donations to local organizations. I will complete a minimum of 40 hours of hands on community based volunteer work.

    I am aiming to raise a minimum of £2,000.

    I want to explore the world while I'm young and make new friends along the way. I love being in the outdoors and can't wait to see the wildlife in Africa. I'm studying history with education at USW, but in my spare time I run and climb. Let the adventure begin!
