Weʼre raising £2,600 to help improve life and preserve wildlife in local communities in Costa Rica next summer!
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Dunoon Grammar School pick a selection of pupils each year to travel to Costa Rica for 4 weeks where we will help improve lives and living quality of people and animals in the local areas we visit. This is a truly amazing once in a lifetime opportunity to explore a new and exciting country while I contribute to the environment and community. We will be visiting and helping at a turtle conservation centre where we will do construction work on their centre and help safely release thousands of endangered leatherback turtle hatchlings from the protected beach. We will then visit the local people in their villages where we work to improve their living standards by working on construction, building and maintenance to improve their communal facilities such as schools and clinics. Nearing the end of our expedition, we trek through the rainforest where I can witness the amazing creatures and wildlife within the rainforest habitat. The money raised from my fundraisers pays for my travel, cooking camping and medical equipment along with the return flights.
This is an incredible opportunity for me to learn all about a different country and really immerse myself in the culture and lifestyle while learning and gaining a wide range of new skills and qualities. I am looking forward to the many tough challenges I will have to face and overcome both individually and with my team. Any help along the way is greatly appreciated and I look forward to summer 2019!
