It has always been a dream of my to be able to go abroad to volunteer, and with the aid of Global Volunteer Network hopefully I will be able to go to Costa Rica for 21 days during September. The construction project which I have chosen I find it really interesting, during the 21 days I will be able to paint,decorate,build walls,dig and build wooden playgrounds and also assist in the preparation work such as cement mixing,cutting wood transport material.
In Costa Rica 7% of the population live under extreme poverty and 20.6% live under poverty, the money received will be used to work in local communities in order to improve their infraestructures.
As you may know in Spain the actual situation isn´t very good and it takes a lot of effort and time to be able to make all the money to help others, so hopefully with your support I will be able to help others that really need it!
Thanks a lot!
