Hello friends! For my 30th I decided to volunteer in Africa this summer (it has been my dream since teenage!). I am about to embark on a 3-week volunteer journey to help provide education, and care, to children from low-income families at local schools in Ghana, Africa, to ensure they are given the best support in their health and learning, and hopefully, you can be a part of it too!

My name is Yun Hsuan, a designer who worked in nonprofits for the disadvantaged, passionate about creating inclusive experiences to support positive social changes. I'm currently taking a career break to learn and work on voluntary projects. Besides this program, I'm initiating a website redesign to enable accessible public mental health care and worked on an early childhood intervention project. I also volunteer locally at The HubOC for homeless people.
Your support is greatly appreciated ♡
Travel expenses are high but the educational needs are greater. I will document my journey on my Medium, would love you to follow along! Thank you in advance for all your reading, prayers, and donations.
No amount is too small and every donation would be greatly appreciated. I cannot describe how much of an impact your support will make on this project! ♡
I am raising money to cover part of my trip, once I reached my target amount, I'll donate the rest to nonprofits or buy groceries for people in need.

My early decision to become a designer was inspired by design projects I saw online, which are solving problems in third-world countries such as affordable sanitary pads for girls so they could go to school, tools for women to carry water on a long walk so they won’t hurt their back, toilets, cooking stove and many more.
Still remember my first design portfolio submitted to the college was about poverty, it seems naive to interviewers from schools I applied to at the time. After working in the tech industry for a few years, I shifted my career to a nonprofit organization and now find myself really fulfilled by learning all about the intersection between design, business, and impact.
It took me years to get back to my original intention and the courage to follow my passion and start again. This trip to Ghana means a lot to me, it has been on my to-do list forever, I’m thrilled to gain a deeper insight into people's lives and the challenges they face in this country. Your support will be really appreciated!
