EVENT DATE Jul 20, 2014

THE STORY:

Hi All!

This summer I will be traveling to rural India for six weeks to volunteer at a non-profit organization called BIRDS.

This fundraiser will help to cover expenses of the trip including but not limited to:

  • Round-trip flights to India ~$2,000
  • Room and board ~$20-30 per day
  • Translator ~$100
  • Vaccinations (Malaria, Rabies, Typhoid, antibiotics, etc.) ~$500
  • Supplies (Malaria prevention bug net, punjabis-traditional Indian clothing, DEET, sunscreen, etc.) ~$200
  • VISA ~$95

Only 16% of women in India exercise safe menstrual hygiene practices (significantly fewer in rural areas).

In India I will be contributing to the development of programs to provide sustainable economic stability to widowed women, and facilitate menstrual hygiene educational programs for school-aged women, in turn increasing the likeliness of their educational success.

Please feel free to contact me for more information!

Thank you so much for all your support!
