Jillian's Volunteer Trip to Lesotho
Organized by: Jillian Percy
Hello All, I'm Jillian and have a passion for helping those in need who cannot help themselves. Throughout my life I have always wanted to be a pediatrician, but as I have begun college I have realized that may not be my calling. I have been involved in many things that have helped me realize that helping and mentoring young people is something I love doing. This trip to Lesotho, Africa is exactly that. I am going with my school, Wittenberg University to help HIV positive orphans. While we are there we plan on building a house for a specific family, build playgrounds and greenhouses, and do some educational painting in classrooms. Being able to do these things and just hearing about them make me so excited. As you could probably imagine money is tight as a college student. This is where I need all of your help. The trip itself is $3,200 plus $2,000 for airfare and any extra money I may need. This is something I am so passionate about doing, and this may be my first volunteer mission trip, but I know I will go on more. Please help me in helping others, because anything you are willing to contribute will help me in pursuing my passion in life. I thank you in advanced for all your help, and it is greatly appreciated.
