WPC Nepal Volunteer Trip

I am raising money to fund my trip to Nepal where I will be volunteering with Friends of WPC Nepal; a non-profit that provides help and resources for victims of human trafficking, for 3-4 months starting at the end of October.

I will be helping WPC (Women's Prevention Center) Nepal with preparations to open a new safe house in Hetauda for women and children rescued from brothels. At the safe house, they will receive food, shelter and emotional support in addition to the resources and skills needed to start a new life, such as vocational training, education and employment opportunities.

For the first 2 weeks of the trip, I will also be visiting the community of Sibuje with a local social business, Travel Life Adventures . I am aiming to raise $300 for the Sibuje Eletcricity Project. This project will bring electricity to Sibuje which will allow the locals to:
          -Build a medical clinic
          -Build locally-owned businesses
          -Encourage tourism

I am hoping to raise a total of $5,000 which will go toward: 
           -Roundtrip airfare 
           -Hotel and food in Kathmandu
           -Travel expenses to Hetauda
           -Visa, vaccinations and travel insurance
           -$550 monthly room and board  
           -The Sibuje Electricity Project

I am really passionate about helping out victims of human trafficking and I have spoken with so many great people who have volunteered with WPC and who have visited Nepal and I have heard nothing but amazing things about the country, people as well as the WPC Nepal organization and Travel Life Adventures. I appreciate any amount of donation as it will be a step closer to rehabilitating and empowering survivors of trafficking.
