I have been accepted on to the Volunteer Eco Students Abroad Program and will be travelling to St Lucia, South Africa in July 2016 to take part in an important sustainable community development project.
I will assist VESA in working with the villagers in addressing the major issues faced by the village and the local schools such as a lack of fresh running water, dilapidated schools and generally poor infrastructure.
Your donation will help to facilitate the means for implementing a major community development project, which will encompass construction in addition to educating the community on matters of conservation, sustainability, health/hygiene and English proficiency.
By supporting me, you will be directly assisting with the costs involved in participating in the program. These costs are significant and include hiring local skilled trades people to supervise and assist in the building projects, building materials and donations to local organisations.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to make a difference donating her time and energy into volunteering overseas this summer.
Thanks for your consideration,
Emma :) x
