Orphanage Work in Tanzania

On September 1, 2014 I will be leaving to spend 10 weeks volunteering at an orphanage in Arusha, Tanzania. My time there will be dedicated to teaching english, cooking, cleaning, doing farm work, and lots and lots of playing with and loving the children. 

I have worked very hard to cover the program fee for this trip myself. (This includes my housing, transportation, meals, orientation and all administrative costs) All donations will be going to my flight and toward sustainable projects that will impact the orphange long after I am gone. All donations are welcomed and greatly appreciated. If you have any questions about how the money you donate will be used feel free to contact me 

I really need your support and I appreciate any contribution you can make to help me.

Thank You So Much for Any Donations!
