Help me help the Nepalese Community

Most of you know me.....for those who don't or want to know more. My name is Ashley. I have had a long time goal to help women and children and have finally found a niche to express myself and help those who need it most. I chose Nepal because I have always been fascinated by their mountains, culture, lifestyle and its spirit. I hope to make amazing relationships with the people of the community that I will be volunteering in for one month. I will be working in a women's and children's shelter in Kathmandu, Nepal starting September 7, 2015. I am so excited to start a new adventure in volunteering in a country that desperately needs it. I'm asking for donations to help fund this. I will be volunteering with a local non profit that works with The Global Volunteer Network. This is a great program that you can also research ! It will cost my 500$ usd a week. This is a lot and I was even taken back. But for one month it will cost me 2000$usd to live. This money goes towards food, training, group support, housing, transportation and goes to the non profit as well. The 800$usd will help me pay for a part of my plane ticket which will cost up to 1800 round trip. I will be saving, selling off items and working extra to afford this. If there is money left over it will go straight to the Women's Empowerment and Education Program in Kathmandu. Any other questions you can email me here. Thank you so much for reading my story. Any dollar amount helps from 1.00$ and above. I appreciate anything even hugs! One love, Ashley OHara. :)
