As many of my close friends and family know, working with children has always been a passion of mine and is near and dear to my heart. In February 2020, I will be going on a volunteer trip of a lifetime, and doing something I never imagined would actually turn into reality. On February 3rd I will begin a three week non-paid volunteering with International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ) childcare project in Cape Town, South Africa. I will be caring for the children, educating, designing activities and helping with general duties in the childcare centers such as cooking, teaching and feeding. The children I will be volunteering with come from poor backgrounds and broken homes and I cannot wait to begin this journey.
My fundraising will go towards program fees, my extra costs of airfares, in country travel and vaccinations. As well as, fundraised money to bring along side me to help with additional projects.
