First of all, some basic info. I’m 20 years old. I was born in Thailand in a small village in the northeastern part. My mom brought me to Denmark, when I was three. We lived a great life until my mom got divorced and got into a car accident, which led to her being unable to work, thus forcing me to help financially. This experience and the role I got in our family made me more mature and made me not take things for granted.
I wish to take part in Childcare Volunteering in Bali through Plan My Gap Year. The reason for that is I wish to help these children grow and somehow make a difference. I wish ensure that they grow on a personal level but also somehow give them a great perspective on the world and life itself, while ensuring that they're in a safe environment, where they are encouraged to be the best person they possible can be. I have a little sister and an older sister with autism. I’ve always taken care of my older sister and I’ve always been a pillar of support for my little sister. This interaction with my sisters have given me a lot of experience with childcaring that I wish to make us of in volunteering.
I got the opportunity to have a decent life although with some difficulties, but haven't we all?
I wish to give another child this opportunity too
Whether it’s just a single child I help or encourage or 100 kids, the amount doesn’t matter. It’s the fact that I made a difference somewhere in the world. I believe that every child should have the opportunity to break their social heritage, which I my self is trying to.
I'm working a lot to save up for this. But some additional help to lift the burden just a bit would be a great help. I've linked to PMGY's description of the project I wish to join. PMGY - Childcare Volunteering
