I will be volunteering in Tanzania, Africa January 2015 for 3 weeks with Growth International Volunteer Excursions (GIVE). I learned of this organization at UIC, where I am currently in Graduate School. I am excited about the opportunity to give back to the world through GIVE. I am also looking forward to making a difference in my life as well as the lives of others.
GIVE focuses on sustainable community development in marginalized communities by assisting, educating, and empowering the local population. The core goal is to provide communities with necessary infrastructure to foster sustainable growth. I will be directly involved in building eco-friendly infrastructure out of recycled materials, teaching English and tutoring children, protecting endangered sea turtles, and organizing extracurricular activities for children. GIVE continues to remain involved in these communities after volunteers like me have left Tanzania. GIVE works within these communities year round to provide opportunities for sustainable development by funding teachers to work in the secondary school and funding doctors to provide medical care in these communities.
I would greatly appreciate a donation to help me serve others abroad. Your contribution will go directly to the cost for me to volunteer. Your donation will help pay for my accommodations, flight, food, in-country travel, materials and costs associated with the volunteer projects.
If you do not feel comfortable sending your donation through my GoFundMe account, please let me know and we can make other arrangements.
Thank you in advance for your donation. I really appreciate you helping me volunteer in Tanzania, Africa and helping me to be the roots of change.
P.S. No worries, if you are concerned about Ebola, it is in West Africa, Tanzania is in East Africa and is listed on the safe list for travel. This experience will indeed be life changing and I can't wait to embrace it all :)
