Hi, most of you know me but just in case, my name is Tomi Selway and I am pursuing a career in emergency services so that I can help others.
This semester, I have decided to take a trip to India to volunteer in their local hospitals and slums. I've committed to at least 3 weeks (beginning Sept. 16) near Delhi, India, staying with a host family there. I'm excited to experience the new culture and help people who otherwise might not be helped.
I am paying for this work with money I originally saved for college, but the expenses are building much higher than anticipated. That’s where the support of my friends and family comes into play! Please consider donating any amount to this effort to help me reach my goal of raising $2,500 by the end of October to help cover the costs* of this volunteer adventure such as program fees, airfare, passport and visa expenses, supplies for basic travel needs, meals and accommodations – I would like to put as little burden on my host family as possible.
If you have any questions, please email my mom, Aishie Selway at [email protected] (since I will be in India).
Thank you so much for your donations, support, and for sharing this with other people you feel might be willing to help me reach my goal!
I will be uploading pictures during my voyage so if you want to see them keep checking back.

PMGY (Plan My Gap Year) has been a wonderful organization to work with so far. They are very attentive and have helped with the many challenges we have run into while planning and preparing for this volunteer trip. Here are some webpages that you might like for more information:
