Ecuador D CA 2017
Team Member: Kayla Russell-Bertucci
Event Name: ME to WE CA - Ecuador 2017
I am Kayla Russell-Bertucci, an 18 year old high school student at Madonna Catholic Secondary School in North York, Ontario. I am raising money to help pay for a volunteer service trip to Ecuador with Me to We. My trip is a total of 15 days from July 29 to August 13th. I will be immersed in the culture of the Andes Mountains of Ecuador and the Amazon.
This trip will consist of many enriching experiences with the goal of learning more about the challenges of women's rights, indigenous rights, education and clean water. My primary goal is to connect with the members of the communities I will be helping with to learn about the issues I mentioned above.
My goal of the trip is to build and create a sustainable way for many individuals to live. The tasks that I will be doing are building schools to digging a well, depending on what the goals of the group are during my project.
Thank you for all of your support with my service trip!
