Event Details

Hi Guys and Girls!! :)
So as you may or may not have heard already I have been accepted on to the Volunteer Eco Students Abroad Program and will be travelling to Africa early next year to take part in an important sustainable community development project. I am seeking sponsorship to enable me to participate in the program and complete essential volunteer work in an African village.

VESA and I will work in conjunction with the villagers and the village chief in addressing the major issues faced by the village and the local schools such as a lack of fresh running water, dilapidated schools and generally poor infrastructure. Your donation will help to facilitate the means for implementing a major community development project, which will encompass construction in addition to educating the community on matters of conservation, sustainability, health/hygiene and English proficiency.

By sponsoring me, you will be directly assisting with the costs involved in participating in the program. These costs are significant and include hiring local skilled trades people to supervise and assist in the building projects, building materials and donations to local organizations. Every volunteer will complete a minimum of 40 hours of hands on community based volunteer work.

I would appreciate donations of any amount, which will enable them to participate in this vital community development program. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to make a difference donating my time and energy into volunteering overseas this summer. If you are able to help, even in the smallest way it would be greatly appreciated.

My departure is on the 1st of February 2015, but the money needs to be in by the 25th of November. At the moment Im needing to raise $2500 and the number can only get smaller!! Would love for everyone to support me with this amazing journey and if you wish to donate I have an account set up:
ASB 12-3023-0472047-51
Please write your details in the reference so I can keep track of who Im thanking :)
