On May the 4th I will be embarking on the most challenging yet rewarding journey of my life thus far. For 4 weeks I will be volunteering in a Kindergarten helping less fortunate children with their homework as well as being a companion to them during times of need. As a volunteer on the Kindergarten project in Zambia, i will provide extra assistance within pre-schools, nursery schools or day care centers with children aged from 2-7 years old. With a significant portion of children living under the poverty line in Zambia, many of these vulnerable children suffer from poor hygiene, inadequate education, insufficient food and little healthcare. Individualized attention and a focus on early development and education are crucial to breaking the cycle of poverty in Zambia.
The fundraised money will help me with travel expenses as well as being able to fund some extra gifts and activities for the children of Zambia.
