My name is Jasmin Peacock and I am participating in a Children’s Project in Vietnam -volunteer program through Global Volunteer Network. GVN is a non-Government organization which places people in a range of opportunities such as teaching or environmental work in a number of countries. I will be working with a local organization in Ba Vi (countryside of North Viet Nam) starting in November 2012.
The goal of volunteering in Ba Vi is to offer underprivileged children a future. We hope to provide children with the basic necessities of life - love, food, clothing and shelter - and also provide them with an education, so they can advance towards the same opportunities as their peers around the world.
During my placement I will be caring for orphans, street children and abused children at an orphanage. I will take on the role of teacher and carer to the children.
In order to complete this assignment I will be using my personal savings and I have been working hard to raise the funds needed to take up this opportunity to help others.
I would appreciate any donations to enable me to take on the challenge of helping others in less fortunate circumstances than ourselves.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the program. Any financial aid will enable me to participate in an experience which helps communities in need.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
