My name is Leslie Milling,
I am from Victoria B.C and will be raising funds so I can volunteer in Colombo, Sri Lanka's through Plan My Gap Year's childcare volunteer program. This will be a rewarding opportunity which will allow me to give back. All funds I receive will go to pay for cost of my flight, accommodation, and food. Funds will also cover cost of teaching supplies and fun activities for the children.My duration in Sri Lanka will go from February 15, 2020 until after March 21, 2020.
Since 2006, Plan my Gap Year has been providing support to vulnerable communities in over 17 countries all over the world. Over 2000 self referred volunteers a year have contributed support with mental health aid, care aid, medical assistance, education, and emotional support to some of the worlds most vulnerable communities. PMGY provides volunteers with a safe and trustworthy international experience with 24 hour a day in country support. I have chosen to do childcare volunteer work in Colombo Sri Lanka because many children there are abandoned by family due to poverty or are placed in government homes due to an abusive upbringing. My role within the organization will include educating, planning activities, and providing vital care and emotional support necessary for these children so they may grow into the bright futures they deserve.
Donations collected will go towards will go towards paying for my travel expenses. These travel expenses cover my flight, travel insurance, food, accommodations, 24 hour in country support, private transportation, teaching supplies and providing activities to the children among others For more information on expenses, my role and the organization itself please visit their site online at https://www.planmygapyear.com/sri-lanka/sri-lanka-childcare-volunteers#1449581263832-75245b57-299c
This will be my first international volunteer aid trip and I am really excited for this amazing opportunity. Any little bit helps and all donations are greatly appreciated.
