Chelsea Goes To Japan

Hi All! 

As you may or may not know my name is Chelsea and I have a passion for education! 

I work in the education field, I plan on getting my Masters in Education Policy and I have a charity that organizes book drives to collect and distribute school books for the Prisoners of Jamaica - so that they can take CXC and CAPE exams. 

I recently got accepted into the Interac Program where I will be making my way to Japan in August to teach English to elementary through to high school students and be a cultural ambassador for Jamaica. 
Interac is a private provider of professional teachers  to the Japanese Government as Assisstant Language Teachers to schools in both rural and urban Japan.

In order to go I would need $5000 (USD); see break down below. I have managed to save some money and will be taking a loan for some as well but I am still a long way away. 

$2000 - Flight 

$2300 - Accommodation set up(1st and last months Rent, Electricity set up etc) , insurance, maintenance

$700 - Miscellaneous  (i.e food, transportation etc) 


Total : $5000 usd

I would love the opportunity  to go to Japan to gain invaluable experience and knowledge on their education system and take what I have learnt to apply to the Jamaican school system when I return. 

I appreciate any help whether it be through monetary contribution or well wishes.
