Hello, my name is Ellie Olander and I'm currently attempting to fundraise for my trip to Borneo in the summer of 2024.
This trip is through Camps International; a volunteer organisation which aims to complete projects in many countries across the world to help sustain and improve the lives of the local communities.
My goal is to raise the £4580 needed for the trip in many different ways and I'm hoping you will be able to help me along the way.
During this 4 week long trip, we will be doing projects including beach litter picking and building community centres using many of the materials we have collected from the litter picking. As well as community projects like installing clean water facilities, education based projects and all around helping to improve the living conditions of the local communities.
We will be based at 4 different camps around Borneo where we will also be undertaking reforestation schemes by planting around 1000 native trees throughout our stay in attempt to battle the ever present climate change crisis we as people have created.
This trip really is a once in a lifetime experience that will not only be extremely fun (from seeing the plethora of wild animals,including the orangutan and sunbear sanctuary, to completing an open water diving course and immersing ourselves in the culture of the locals.) but also incredibly beneficial for the local communities I hope to be a part of.
