In 2016 I traveled to Morocco for 2 weeks to volunteer working with children in nurseries and as many of you know, those two weeks in a different country, struggling to communicate with others, turned out to be the best two weeks of my life. I got to explore the beautiful country Morocco and its culture and had so much fun working with and getting to know the children. Teaching them to speak English and watching them develop throughout the two weeks was the highlight!
From this experience I’ve always said I’d love to volunteer abroad again in different countries. As I’ve finally finished University both Undergraduate and master’s degrees I feel that now is the right time for me to live my best life and do what I do best which is traveling and working with Children!
I’ve decided to travel to Asia for 10 weeks. Visiting Thailand, Bali, Sri Lanka, India and Nepal. I’ve heard many stories from others about how beautiful Asia is, with its rich culture, deep history and perfect beaches. Now its time for me to experience and live the dream with my own eyes.
While I’m traveling out in Asia I am also going to volunteer in each country, working with children. Many children in Asia are not as privileged as children in the UK, which saddens my heart and makes me want to help contribute to the lives of disadvantaged children. I will be helping in orphanages, community schools, nurseries and with disabled children. Making a difference to the lives of neglected children through love and affection. Providing care and support to children to help with their learning and development and teach them English and provide the tools to help them achieve employment and break the cycle of poverty.
This is where you come in...
I have already saved £3000 for the cost of flights, accommodation and projects, and am aiming to raise a further £2000 to help cover the costs of living expenses, traveling and resources for the children. With the money raised I would also like to donate some to the projects out in Asia.
As such loving Family and Friends, I would greatly appreciate if you could contribute to helping raise money for my 10 week travel and volunteer in Asia doing the two things that I am very passionate about.
All donations are welcome!
Every contribution, no matter how large or small, makes a difference.
I will be traveling through an organisation known as Plan My Gap Year. Feel free to find more information and details about the organisation and projects on their website: https://www.planmygapyear.co.uk/#
