Hello! I am a 21 year old girl with big dreams of helping and traveling around the world!
My name is Daniela, and I am from Bulgaria, but have lived in Spain the most of my life. I love working with animals and helping people on day to day basis. I want to do this volunteering trip with the intention of volunteering with other people to change the lives of children and also changing my own life and perspective of the world in the meantime!
In the summer of 2019, I will be going to Thailand with PMGY, and will be volunteering and experiencing the world of Thailand for 4 weeks!
PMGY is founded by volunteers for volunteers, they work with local communities in the developing world towards long-term sustainable goals. They know there is no better way to travel and make a positive impact on the world.
''We work extremely hard to ensure that our opportunities are affordable for everyone who wants to make a difference. So fees are 100% transparent, something our volunteers really appreciate.''
By donating to my cause, you will be helping me out:
- Teaching children inschools and doing renovation projects in Ban Thing Dung.
Ban Thing Dung is a sleepy village located in the Nong Khai district of North East Thailand. Farming and fishing are the main sources of income, particularly fishing as the Ban Thin Dung is located right next to the Mekong River. Ban Thin Dung is a sleepy village surrounded by paddy fields and coconut trees.
I will be with a group and will be getting involved in teaching at local schools and carrying out some essential community renovation projects.
- Donating and working with Elephant Nature Park.
Established in 2005, the Thai Elephant home is an eco-friendly home where the elephants are well cared for and happy. The profits made from the home are invested into saving the local jungle. The money is used to buy areas of the jungle that have been destroyed by elephants left to forage for their own food. The dead vegetation is replaced and protected until it is regrown. Fees paid are also used to cover the costs of caring for the elephants.
Donations will also help me be able to experience the 4 weeks of Thailand and everything it has to offer!
- For any donation over €50, I will send you 2 souvenir gifts (1 magnet and one cultural) from Thailand, including a Thank you Post card from Thailand!
- For any donation over €100, I will send you a video from Thailand, made especially for you, with a little surprise! (also includes souvenirs and Thank you Postcard)!
Thank you for reading, and any amount counts, even if it's just 1 Euro!
