As my friends and family may already know, I have decided to volunteer abroad through the well accredited international Volunteer Headquarters organization. Due to the economic downturn here at home and across the world, i've decided to embark on a new direction in life helping the many people in other countries much less fortunate than ourselves. My destination/placement is in Peru, Cusco for 2 weeks where i will be volunteering in the construction/renovation program which assists in rebuilding community establishments (schools, clinics etc) as well as local homes of impoverished families in the area, and the holiday experience where I help organise gatherings, parties and meals for families and individuals in need over the Christmas and New years holiday.
Any donation made will directly benefit my journey and the programs in place run by IVHQ which go far beyond my programs to include childcare and education, environmental conservation and much needed medical aid/training for both people and animals. 2 weeks will NOT change the world, but will at least have the slightest impact for the permanent volunteers long term in doing so. Your contribution means you will have also had an impact in shifting today's world to a better tomorrow.
I appeal to your kind hearts and thank you for your generosity!
