Hi friends and family, I am Zanele or "Zee". I'm based in Johannesburg South Africa and, for the longest time I've had a burning desire to travel the world and also make an impact in the lives of those around me and the less fortunate. So I've done research on a few volunteer programs based in Bogota, Colombia and this one:https://www.volunteerhq.org/destinations/colombia/... It's a charity/volunteer program which aids homeless people of Colombia. This program means or is based on making meals for: women, men and children.
The homeless are human beings just like everyone else, some have been struck down in their professions and lost everything, some were born into it and others have many more stories of how they ended up where they are today but, the fact is neither of them deserve to live a long life of hunger and barely getting by. With this program I will be attending to any of their needs which incudes feeding them. I will also take it upon myself to give away blankets and toys for the homeless in Bogota so, this fundraiser's success will mean the world to me and I'm sure my impact will mean the world to the needy too.
I've decided that 3 weeks is ideal for me and, it will cost me over $500 and this does not include: visas, travel safety/travel insurance, Flight to and back from Bogota and etc. This is mentioned on the website: https://www.volunteerhq.org/ivhq-program-fee/ and also on the program's page itself https://www.volunteerhq.org/destinations/colombia/... Another cost I would like to cover are the blankets and toys I would like to give away.
The impact that I will leave in their lives (even if I will only be helping for 3 weeks), will be a huge turn in their lives. I've always wanted to make a difference so, please allow me this opportunity by helping me reach my goal.
