My name is Albin and I've had the most amazing dream for the past three years, in this dream I get to go to South Africa to learn more about- and help our oceans in any way possible for a couple of weeks. I have now have found a way to turn this dream into reality, it's through a company that offers volunteer work in the field of "Marine & Reef Conservation" in South Africa.
If I were to do this, it would not only make my biggest dream come true and probably change my life forever, but I would also get to help our oceans and the locals in and around Sodwana Bay in South Africa.
I would also really like to do this because I'm hoping I would get connections and/or inspiration to get into this line of work and get to continue working within the field of marine and reef conservation somewhere in the world.
After a lot of research, looking and comparing companies I have decided to go through this one with my volunteer work: https://www.goxplore.se/program/marine-reef-conser..
The website is unfortunately only in Swedish with no English version available. (Google translate may do the trick though.)
- 3150€ for GoXplore, this includes the following: PADI Open Water- or Advanced certification, dive-gear, food, water and a place to sleep, research/educational books, the project itself + education for it, transport to and from the airport, daily entry costs into the national park and other local fees.
- 735€ for the flight, round-trip/ there and back.
- 285€ pocket money for the 8 weeks.
- 94€ approximately for secondhand mask, snorkel and swim-fins/flippers
In total I would need 4264€ for this volunteer project.
I currently have 1680€ saved up for this.
Thank you very much for reading through this!
