"Often we set out to make a difference in the lives of others only to discover we have made a difference in our own." 
--Ellie Braun-Haley


Hello,
My name is Ashleigh an I am currently a Senior at Hampton University. I will be graduating in May 2013 with the hopes of volunteering abroad. June 15th 2013 I will be traveling to Kenya for 4 months volunteering time and efforts to help those in need. There I will be working alongside teachers and other volunteers.

"ORPHANAGE WORK Due to the high incidences of poverty and illness, orphanages in Kenya can host 50-300 children at any one time and there is always a high demand for more volunteer assistance. In Kenya we have a few different types of orphanages, some which house and foster abandoned and orphaned children, some which have schools attached, and some where the volunteers live at the orphanage full time. Each orphanage accommodates children of differing ages, but generally volunteers work with children from 2 to 16 years of age. Orphanages are always busy, whether the children are at home or at school, and volunteers can help with all areas of daily activity including cooking, cleaning, washing, caring, feeding, playing and entertaining. "
 
Ever since a young age I've always wanted to make some sort of difference in the lives of others whom are less fortunate. Volunteering in an orphanage in Kenya would be the perfect opportunity! With a little help I would be able to fulfill my dream! Please help me reach my goal in raising money to help me volunteer through the IVHQ (International Volunteer HQ) program. Any donations would go towards program fees, flights, visas, shots etc. and donations for the children upon arrival. Any donations would be greatly appreciated and if any other information is needed feel free to contact me! (Ashleigh.Germany@yahoo.com) Thank You In Advance!!

* Donations are accepted through May 2013 :)*
