I am currently 17 years old and have big ambitions to make a positive impact on people's lives.. Next February I am going to be traveling to The Gambia on a volunteer project to try and help the local communities. We will be working with both the children and adults in a medical center, local school and in the village to help build a better lifestyle for those less fortunate than ourselves.
I am trying to raise as much money as I can to donate to the people, as well as pay for clothes, toys and equipment etc. to take over there that they would otherwise be without. We will be sending out a container and hope to fill it with as many goodies as we possibly can! Some fundraising will contribute to my journey out there to enable me to work within the local village, building houses, teaching the children and the staff in the schools. For example, sharing teaching strategies that they have not had the opportunity to learn already and also physical work to try and improve their quality of life.
If you can spare a pound or two, your donations will be a massive help to really make a difference to these peoples lives!
