On May 16th, I will be leaving to volunteer in an orphanage in Sri Lanka for three weeks. Due to a lack of staffing and volunteering at an orphanage in Kandy, International Volunteer Headquarters (IVHQ) is looking for volunteers to assist in creating a loving and nurturing environment for orphans with many special needs. As a volunteer, I will be working with the children in speech sessions, English lessons, homework help, and group activities. I will be working in this special needs center to help with maintenance, as well, and my jobs may also include gardening, cooking, cleaning, painting, and the like. I'm looking forward to getting back to volunteering, as I took the last summer off, but I need to pay for the cost of the program, my flights, additional transportation to and from the airport, and living with a host family. Any donation would be greatly appreciated, as I am hoping to be able to fundraise the entire cost of the trip while I continue my studies at school. It is because of the generosity of friends, family, and even strangers that I was able to travel before, and I am hoping you will be interested in helping me to help others once more. Thank you so much for your kind hearts and I'm looking forward to being able to share my experiences and stories with you upon my return!
