Issy's Camp Borneo Expedition 2020

Hi, my name is Issy and I've recently been given this once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to Borneo for 4 weeks, with other pupils from my school in Maidstone ,in the summer of 2020. 

We will be spending 4 weeks in different communities in Borneo where we will be getting the chance to live and work with the local teams. During this adventure, I will be:

- Digging foundations, decorating, building classroom furniture and creating a playground area for a kindergarden in Bongkud.

- Developing community amenities which would include installing bathrooms, laying bricks, building and making furniture in Mantanani. 

- Habitat conservation which would include tree planting, wildlife monitoring along the Kinabatangan river and seed collection.

Being able to take part in this trip, I will be able to put myself out of my comfort zone and place myself into different situations which wouldn't be available back home in England.  With this trip, I will be able to improve my teamwork skills, patience, communication skills and leadership skills. 

This trip costs £4500 in total, which is a lot of money which I will part fund with some of the money I earn during my part-time job,  charity events that the school and I will be organising (expect some cake making!) and I will be asking for businesses and personal donations to sponsor me to reach my target to take part in this unbelievable trip.
