My name is Felyka and I am studying a Certificate 3 in Captive Animals through Open Universities. I have been selected to participate on an international volunteer program in South Africa with International Student Volunteers, and I would like to ask for you/your organisation’s support in sponsoring me to help raise part of the cost of my trip which will be $5000.
International Student Volunteers is a renowned organisation that connects students from around the world with volunteer projects focused on grassroots development and conservation initiatives. The project I will be contributing to is conservation based and involves at least 80 hours of volunteering in South Africaover a two week period. This experience will broaden my awareness of environmental issues and give me hands-on, practical experience in conservation initiatives. Our team will be dedicated to working in areas such as endangered species protection, community education, scientific research and habitat restoration while we receive valuable education in sustainable management of resources and responsible use of the natural environment.
Any contribution that you can make toward sending me on this program will bring me closer to my goal, such as sponsoring for each hour of volunteering. To donate, I have enclosed an envelopewhich you can send back to me. Otherwise, you can donate to me online through PayPal on ISV’s website at www.isvolunteers.org under the “Payments” link, using my name Felyka Gauci email address: [email protected] and participant ID #: 138141.Although ISV is registered not for profit organisation in the US, donations are not tax deductible here in Australia/New Zealand (although still very much appreciated). You may learn more about ISV at www.isvolunteers.org.
I can’t thank you enough for your support and consideration, and look forward sharing pictures and stories of my experience!
