THE STORY:

My name is Eimileanne Delaney. I am 22 years old from the United States of America. I attend Northern Illinois University and plan to graduate in December,2015 with a bachelor's degree in family social services and a minor in psychology. I am currently interning at a sexual assault crisis center where I provide medical and legal advocacy for victims of sexual assault, sexual abuse, and sex trafficking. After I graduate, I would like to go to graduate school to pursue Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) and eventually open my own practice primarily working with people affected by sexual assault. Before going on to graduate school, I would like volunteer with Kolkata Sanved in India. Kolkata Sanved uses Dance Movement Therapy as an alternative approach to counseling, psychosocial rehabilitation, self-expression, and empowerment. Kolkata Sanved pioneered the use of DMT as a therapeutic tool in 2004 for those who are most vulnerable and underprivileged, enabling young women survivors of trafficking to emerge as self-sufficient leaders and DMT trainers. I have already spoken with the founder of Kolkata Sanved and have be given the invitation to come and volunteer for 3 months. However, I now need the monetary funds to make this dream a reality.
