Dream Gap Year in Madagascar

I have 5 days to raise as much as possible, so I can go on an adventure of a lifetime.

Anyway to the point, I got a scholarship for a complex and culturally immersive program with Where There Be Dragons. During the time on the trip I would be studying the island nation Of Madagascar, we would be given lectures and doing our own independent work on topics such as, rare and endangered lemurs, St. Marie island, where Many pirates made their bases, and especially the culture and how the democracy of the island works, how they decide to conserve their forests but also colonize them. I hope to use this information to better my own community, which is also surrounded a rainforest and we also have issues on how to use it wisely. There are plenty of other similarity between our small communities like new tourism and making it eco friendly, keeping water and oceans clean, and keeping the native life there and alive.

On top of all that I am so honored to qualify let alone being able to go and help my community by doing it. Most of the fee, 6000$, is being paid by my Mum, but she has to take care of my younger brothers and the rest of the family too so this is already enough of a stress on her pockets and I hope to lessen the burden on her too. Please help fund me. 
For more information message me and I will be happy to answer any questions.
