Welcome and thanks for visting my fundraising page!
Why am I Fundraising?
In January 2015 I am embarking on a journey to Cambodia to spend 3 weeks volunteering with EdVenture International focusing on education mainly teaching English and working in orphanages in a small village near Siem Reap.
Who are EdVenture International?
'EdVenture International is an international volunteer organisation aimed at helping local communities in Thailand, Costa Rica, Cambodia and South Africa, while also helping the participants in the programs to develop leadership skills and discover their inner strengths necssary to continue benefiting their local communities.'
EdVenture's focus on volunteering, adventure and cultural immersion together with personal development and leadership skills is what made me want to volunteer with them.

What does the money raised go towards?
I am looking to raise $2000 to go towards covering the cost of the program plus anything additional to put back into the local economy. The program cost includes educational materials for the orphanages and schools we will be working in, building materials for local projects, payment of local skilled trades people as well as local transport etc. I will be covering my own flights and additional travel costs and will be contributing to the cost of the program as well.

If you want to help me help the lovely people of Cambodia please donate! Any donation big or small can make a huge difference in these people's lives and will enable me to be successful on this adventure. Thank you in advance! x
