Hello, my name is Ebony and I am 12 years old.
This summer, I have the opportunity to attend an International Programme through the CISV. We will be spending 4 weeks at an International Village in Luxemburg during the school summer holidays. I will spend the time with children of the same age from between 10 and 12 different countries from across the globe. I am really excited, am looking forward to making new friends from different cultures and learning to be more independent. I believe this will help shape my future, build my confidence and help me learn to be the best human being I can be.
) is a registered charity which focusses on building global friendships in an effort to reduce prejudice and cultural misunderstanding. They believe that peace is possible through friendship, and that a real difference can be made by starting with children. The full cost of this experience is £1200, which includes food, insurance, flights and accommodation. I am meeting this cost myself through grant applications and through fundraising. Therefore, I am asking if you are able to offer a small donation towards the cost, to help me to be able to fund this trip to Luxemburg.
I am extremely grateful to you for taking the time to read my story. Thank you
