Hi guys, my name is Doubra Thompson, i'll be volunteering in Arusha, Tanzania, in June 2017 with PlanMyGapYear. I will be taking part in one of their many incredible projects, Volunteering to help the orphanages. I will be involved in various aspects of caring for these wonderful and beautiful children, feeding and helping to prepare their meals, organising games and activities. I am currently on a Gap year and I believe this amazing and exciting opportunity will enable others who are less privileged to receive help in a profound way, by meeting the needs of those who are less fortunate in a very personal manner.
It is estimated that around 1.4 million Tanzanians are infected with HIV. Furthermore, for every 1,000 births almost 6 women die in childbirth. These factors along with general widespread poverty and minimal state welfare have resulted in an alarmingly high level of orphans and street children in Tanzania.
Your money will give me the opportunity to help the children out in a direct way, there is nothing too small to give! every little helps. I hope you support me on this awesome and once in a lifetime opportunity.
Thank you for your time!
