Thank you for viewing my fundraiser page! I am going to be volunteering in Africa for three months from August. I will be going to Ghana, Tanzania and South Africa.

Volunteers have a vital role in supporting these local communities and I really want to be a part of this. As some of you may know, I am in my final year of my masters in dance movement psychotherapy, am a yoga teacher and have extensive experience in childcare and teaching/tutoring experience.

In Ghana, I will volunteer for the mental health team in a hospital. The resources are limited and mental health is still very much a taboo in this part of the world. As I finish my masters in July, I hope to bring a different perspective and support to this local community. Dance therapy is a non-verbal form of psychotherapy with a list of benefits far too long to add here, but please do have a look.

In Tanzania, I will volunteer to teach in a local school. The education system is very underdeveloped here and I will be fully immersed in educating the children and putting a smile on their faces. I hope to facilitate dance therapy-inspired sessions and yoga classes for the children to enable them to experience new and beneficial practices.

Then, in South Africa I will be a childcare volunteer, cooking and playing with the children ensuring they have lots of fun and are well cared for!

Although I am a volunteer, there are many expenses to facilitate this trip. There are fees to book onto the programme, flights, insurance, vaccinations, etc. The fees go towards the project to keep it running and ensure volunteers continue to come and support those less priveleged than us. I am also hoping to bring a whole suitcase full of donations for the schools and hospitals, so would love to be able to go and buy some new toys and books, etc., for the children.

I am a student and working as hard as I possibly can to save money whilst juggling a research project. I will be looking to plan some fundraisers soon but really appreciate any support so I can offer my services to local communities that need the support.
