My trip is entirely self-funded – I need to provide my own transportation to/from PR, as well as Yabucoa (appx. 2 hours from airport), as well as bedding, food, job-site supplies, etc. Any donations I receive that are not used to pay for my direct expenses will be donated to the local community before I depart. I will also be bringing extra clothing and supplies to donate. I greatly appreciate any support you are able to provide, whether financial or supplies. I will post updates as I make arrangements and connect with fellow volunteers. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or want to know more about the program!
