Ryleigh's Gap Year- East Africa

I deferred my enrollment to The University of Alabama in order to take a gap year. I plan on taking a service based trip to East Africa with ARCC starting in the fall and lasting for 3 months. On my trip I will be involved in many community service projects. I am trying to raise money to pay for my trip and would appreciate any help! Below I have listed a few of the places I will be visiting and volunteering at over the course of my trip.
        -Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary: promotes the reintroduction of rhinos into protected areas of the region
        -Daraja Academy of Kenya: provides free education to girls in need in Kenya
        -Pippi House: the only safe house for girls in Arusha, Tanzania which provides support for women suffering from homelessness, neglect, forced labor, trafficking, etc.
        -Baga Beach Lovers Project: seeks new ways to clean up pollution on beaches, supports local artisians to find ways in order to recycle waste, and reaches out to educate the community on environmental issues
