My name is Madalina Peicea and I am participating in a Children’s Project in Uganda -volunteer program through Global Volunteer Network. GVN is a non-Government organization which places people in a range of opportunities such as teaching or environmental work in a number of countries. I will be working with a local organization in rural western Uganda starting October 15th, 2013
This is the area where HIV/AIDS has most devastated Uganda. The GVN local partner is focused on bringing aid, education, and love to the orphans of the area, many of whom have lost their parents due to AIDS related illnesses.
During my placement I will help with basic academics, feeding, organizing play, arts and crafts, hygiene and HIV/AIDS education appropriate to the childrens' age level (3 to 12 years).
In order to complete this assignment I will be using my personal savings and I have been working hard to raise the funds needed to take up this opportunity to help others.
I would appreciate any donations to enable me to take on the challenge of helping others in less fortunate circumstances than ourselves.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the program. Any financial aid will enable me to participate in an experience which helps communities in need.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
