Thank you for visiting this campaign. You are the driving force for volunteers to fulfill the world's needs. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Marina Gonzalez. Locally, you'll find me as a speech therapist, with a behavioral background assisting youth and their families to find their voice and become functionally independent.
I have passionately volunteered for my community for years and wish to extend this passion worldwide. Working for various non-profits, schools districts, and independent and small businesses has allowed me to live humbly and comfortably, but as you can imagine traveling expenses and accommodations add up. Spreading knowledge and compassion is priceless, however, traveling is not. Donations made by you will assist to prepare for and during a teaching program to help increase access to education in communities.
March 14th marks the start of the 8-week non-paid volunteer experience with International Volunteer Headquarters (IVHQ). In addition to teaching, children will require after-school care, tutoring, creating lesson plans and activities to improve English literacy, build vocational skills and enhance career prospects among students. A particular focus is supporting children and families who experience poverty and children with “special rights.” Let's supply them with materials, and adolescent necessitates to assist with attention span and retention, along with any personal and academic items they may require at home. My vision is to create an environment and community where children's voices, thoughts, and opinions are heard and valued. Your support will make that possible!
Your generosity, regardless of the amount, will directly fund others to grow their knowledge. Funds raised will also assist in airfare, transportation, program fees
, visas, and travel insurance. The remaining balances will assist with any local projects. (If monetary donations are not possible I will gladly accept physical donations such as compact school supplies, books, puzzles, etc. to take.)
Your time is greatly appreciated and I hope you are moved to make a donation!

These topics (color/weather/vocab) are used in everyday conversation. Although simple, many kiddos have no basic knowledge of this due to a lack of input. However, when we sit at the same level, discuss, sing and involve them, the information is relayed much easier as we can both learn from one. . . . .

Hi all,My departure is quickly approaching and I am bursting with excitement! I have reached the point where I have been awarded my Volunteer authentication letter to verify my 2-month mission.
