I will be leaving to volunteer for two weeks in San Jose, Costa Rica on July 14th, 2019. I am doing my volunteer work with International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ) and participating in their construction and renovation project. As explained to me by IVHQ, this project includes working to support underfunded projects, primarily at children centers, community centers, and local clinics.
Having just graduated from NVU, which is located in my hometown, I feel that this summer is the perfect time for me to experience a culture different than the one which I am accustom to. And what better way to do that than by living with a host family and working alongside locals to serve their community.
Originally, I had planned to volunteer for a longer period of time (at least a month), but unexpected car troubles ate up a large portion of the money I had saved for this trip. With that being said, I am still extremely excited to serve in Costa Rica for two weeks! If you feel inclined to support my volunteer work, donations would be greatly appreciated. By supporting me you will be giving to a community and people in need. Thank you in advance!
