Volunteer Trip to Tanzania
Organized by: Kayla Nolan
Recently I was given the opportunity to be involved with a group of change-makers like myself. I have been invited to partake in a trip to Tanzania with my best friend, Tessa, who relies on using a wheelchair full time. On this trip, I will be partnering with my best friend as her care giver to provide the best possible experience for her, as well as myself and to partake in this incredible once in a life time mission trip. On this trip, we will be involved in a number of volunteer and development projects as well as leadership building activities. This will be a 20-day excursion and will begin in mid-May. The cost will be approximately $5000. Through this trip, I will have the ability to directly involve myself in creating positive change within a community outside of my own. I will be helping to build educational facilities for those in the area that we will be visiting, and I will be able to immerse myself in a culture that is different than what I am currently familiar with. All the money raised through this medium will go towards funding this incredibly life-changing experience. This trip will allow me to be apart of something important and something that I am extremely passionate about. The trip will provide me with life-changing experiences and will allow me to gain a broader awareness and new perspective on different ways of life. It would mean absolutely everything if it were to be made a reality.
