In summer 2018 I am hoping to go to Peru for 4 weeks with Camps International to help with local community projects to improve the standard of living in one of the poorest parts of the world. Access to basic healthcare and hygienic toilets and washing facilities is something many of us take for granted – but it is still a huge problem faced by billions of people in some of the poorest and most remote communities in the world. It is estimated that proper facilities for water, sanitation and hygiene has the potential to prevent at least 9.1% of the global disease burden and 6.3% of all deaths. During the trip I will have the opportunity to help the local communities by improving school facilities, building greenhouses (malnutrition is common), improving sanitation facilities and tourism development.. Nearly 50% of rural communities live below the poverty line and with a lack of education and poor vegetable growing conditions malnutrition is a real problem and these communities need our help. The trip is not only about helping these communities but also help me grow and develop as a person. I'll get to experience the local communities and learn their culture and finally undertake the ultimate challenge of a 5 day trek along the Salkantay Trail to the sacred ancient ruins of Machu Picchu. This is a fantastic opportunity and I would really welcome your support to make this a reality.
