Volunteering Trip to Africa!

Howdy,

Ethan and I are university students from Adelaide, Australia. We are raising money to participate in a trip to Africa with Volunteering Eco Students Abroad (VESA).

Ethan has extensive experience volunteering with the organisation Operation Flinders, where he worked with youth at risk using bush adventure therapy. He would absolutely love to be able to share his experiences with future participants, so he can inspire and guide them onto a positive path in life. 

I have also undertaken a lot of volunteering before, from working at the Red Dove Cafe at the Royal Adelaide Show to teaching old folks how to use computers. I have never volunteered overseas and, from what I have been told from friends who have already had this experience, this trip is one of those events that you must do at least once in your life time.

We are really excited that we have been selected to go on this trip, but as broke university students, we would really like some help with funding!

This trip will allow us to help disadvantaged people living in the St. Lucia area of South Africa by, teaching English to local primary children, helping build housing and bathrooms for locals in need, observation and counting of eggs of crocodiles and working with the local cheetah rehabilitation, breeding and release program.

We will be partaking in our adventure in December of this year, but the trip needs to be completely paid for by October.

This trip means a lot to us as it will allow us to not only go on the adventure of a lifetime, but more importantly, support people and wildlife in need of help.

We would be extremely grateful to all those who donate to allow us to go on this trip.
