Hello, my name is Elliot.
I am 17 years old and I am currently studying for my A-levels at sixth form. In January 2021 I will be travelling, as a volunteer, to Cambodia to teach English as a foreign language through the non-profit organisation Plan My Gap Year. In Cambodia I will be teaching in a small village near the capital Phnom Penh. During my time in there I hope to boost the confidence of the students in their English as well as planning and participating in extra-curricular activities outside the classroom.
I decided that Cambodia was the ideal place for me to volunteer as it is a country recovering from extreme poverty and difficulty and I believe that through teaching English I could help the futures of students for the better.
Plan My Gap Year is a non-profit organisation that sends volunteers all around the world, especially to developing countries, for a multitude of structured programmes including teaching, medical experiences and conservation projects.
In order to volunteer abroad I need to raise £5000 to cover both the programme fees for Plan My Gap Year and other essentials including flights, travel insurance and living expenses.
I would be incredibly appreciative of any donations towards my time in Cambodia.
Thank you so much for your support,
