THE STORY:

Dear Peeps!

This year will be my first time volunteering to teach in both India and Indonesia. I would like to help raise money for the schools where I will be volunteering. My trip is fully funded, so all donations will directly go to the schools. 

As you may be aware, there is a huge gap between between the currencies. Your 3 dollars translates to 180 Indian rupees and about 36345 Indonesian rupiah. This much money is capable of buying basic books or 2 pairs of shoes or child's lunch for 4 days . Along with the these basic necessities, it can bring a smile to their face which is priceless, considering the conditions in which they go to school.

It's not just about the quality of a teacher- it's also about making sure these kids have food to eat and shoes on their feet and tools to use in class so they can focus on actual learning.

What will donating get you?
Immense gratitude and selfless prayers from these kids.

I strongly believe that education is not a privilege, but rather a right. It would be amazing if you guys could support the under-funded schools by donating as much or as little as you can. Thank you in advance and I really hope to provide these schools with basic classroom supplies.

In India I am volunteering through Teach for India program.

For Indonesia, I am volunteering through Workaway.

Thank you for reading about my fundraiser. You are awesome!

P.S. The price of a Starbucks latte could mean so much to these kids :)
