EVENT DATE Jun 25, 2017

THE STORY:

This June, I have an amazing opportunity to visit Tanzania and volunteer with a wonderful organization called Growth International Volunteer Excursions (GIVE). GIVE focuses on sustainable community development in marginalized communities by assisting, educating, and empowering the local population. The core goal is to provide communities with necessary infrastructure to foster sustainable growth. I will be directly involved in building eco-friendly infrastructure out of recycled materials, teaching English and tutoring to children, protecting endangered sea turtles, and organizing extracurricular activities for children.

It is so important me to give back to the world while fostering my own individual growth. I am very passionate about volunteering my time, energy, heart, and soul to help communities around the world. I'm so excited to give back and use this experience to continue helping throughout my life! If you know me personally, you know that I am extremely passionate about my job as a middle school science teacher. This experience is a great opportunity to help me grow as a teacher and bring the knowledge back to my classroom. I cannot think of a better way to expand my awareness than to go out into the world and help educate in other communities.

However, in order to make this happen, I must raise my own funds. This trip in total is going to cost me roughly $6,000. I am asking for any donation, big or small, from family, friends, or anyone willing to help me on my journey. Your contribution will go directly to the cost for me to volunteer. Your donation will help pay for my accommodations, food, in-country travel, materials and costs associated with the volunteer projects.  It is not easy for me to ask for financial assistance, but any help is greatly appreciated!!

If you have any questions or would like more information, please call me at (219)508-5760 or email me at ajade903@gmail.com.  Thank you for helping me to be the roots of change. LOVE and LIGHT
