I will be traveling to Rift Valley Children's Village (RVCV) near the Oldeani village in Tanzania. It is a three week trip and I need your help to get there!

It has always been a goal of mine to volunteer in a village in Africa. RVCV will give me a chance to fulfill this goal. I will be traveling in May, before I start my career as an Industrial Engineer. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and would appreciate any help available. All additional funds raised will be donated to the Tanzanian Children's Fund.

Information about RVCV volunteering:
"Volunteering at the Rift Valley Children’s Village is a wonderful experience for volunteers as well as for our children. Volunteering involves hard work, doing without many comforts or luxuries to which you might be accustomed and throwing yourself into tasks and projects that may be completely new to you.

Our days begin early (6:15a.m.) and do not end until our last child has been put to bed (about 7:30p.m.). The "work" you will be asked to do may vary according to what you are assigned to. Everyone at the Children’s Village is expected to chip in whenever a gap needs to be filled – soothe a child who has just scraped his knee, assist with afternoon and weekend activities, help with bath time, and help with tutoring our children. Our main goal of the Children's Village is to assure that our children feel loved and valued each and every day. In short, this may be the most difficult and the most rewarding work you have ever done. " (
