Amazon G CA 2017
Team Member: Kate Newell
Event Name: ME to WE CA - Amazon 2017
I'm fundraising to go on a ME to WE trip to The Amazon. I will be spending two days in Quito (the capital of Ecuador), then travelling to The Amazon for two weeks! While I am there I will be helping local communities with ongoing development projects. The projects could be anything from helping the locals run summer camps for children, to planting trees with the field workers. The focus of our volunteer work will be to help empower families to lift themselves from poverty. The efforts we will be contributing will revolve around the We Charity's five pillars: clean water and sanitation, agriculture and food security, education, health or alternative income and livelihood. When on this trip I will learn firsthand about social issues including women’s rights, racial inequality on rural Indigenous communities and accessability of education and clean water.
