I am funding underpriviedged high school students on an adventure of a lifetime - Costa Rica! I am asking that you give any amount that you are able and I will match the funds that are raised on this site. I am not a person of means and I will be working an extra job to come up with my share of the funds. Why? Because many of these students have not traveled beyond their city or state and I believe that travel teaches more than a book. Thiss will be an amazing experience for these students. By experiencing a culture the students will be given the gift of seeing lifestyles outside their community.
While being immersed in the Costa Rican culture these students will be taking a guided tour of Poas Volcano National Park, seeing hot springs and waterfalls in the Arenal Region, and taking a tour of Santa Elena Cloud Forest.
On the trip the students will create a digital journal of their experiences in both video and written formats. The will journal about their personal experiences with culture, history, and interacts with the local community. I know that they students will return to their rural high school and share their experiences with classmates.
Please help me to help as many students as possible. Thank you for considering this project.
