Please help fund my expedition to Peru!
Hi, my name is Millie Day, I am a 16 year old student at Churston Ferrers Grammar School here in Devon England.
Every few years my school gives a small group of us an amazing opportunity by organising a volunteer trip to Peru to work with children in a school which is partnered with ours and a boys orphanage high in the mountains of Cusco. The expedition, which involves teaching the children life skills and a construction project will take place in July 2017 and last for just under a month. I have booked my place in the expedition team and I aim to raise £3500 to get there. In order to reach this target, I'm organising various events such as concerts, bake sales and other small events. I will also raise money with support of my church, my personal funds and hopefully donations from you. I will keep everybody posted on my progress via my facebook page.
This month will challenge me in many ways with a change in culture, being thousands of miles away from what I know, and working in a completely different environment to anything I have done before. I feel that this would be an extremely rewarding experience and I would love to take this amazing chance to go to Peru and make a difference to the boys and girls of the schools and orphanage.
Please help with a donation, no matter how big or small. Every penny will help me achieve my goal of getting to Peru, and when I am there, I hope that the children I meet and myself can both benefit from this life changing expedition.
