I would just like to spend a bit of time telling you all what I want to do in about a year, and I would love it if you could all extend a helping hand in getting me there. As the title states, I am wanting to head over to Cambodia in January 2015 to work with a volunteer group. The only problem is I may not be able to afford to study full time as well as earn the $3000 to go over.
Before I ask you to do anything I should tell you a little bit about what I will be doing. Now this is actually really exciting because for one of the two weeks I will be working hands on with the elephants. Not only will I be able to help bathe them but work on different projects that will benefit the elephants, something like planting new plants to help cover the amount of food that they consume each day. This would be one of the most amazing experiences to have as I am now studying Zoology it is really something that I want to work towards doing for a career. The second week I am in Cambodia I will be working in a small village about half an hour out of the city. Whilst here I will not only get to be toured by the locals, be immersed in a completely new culture, visit historic places and to help those in the villages a number of ways. This could be by helping construct huts, which are all approved and built to the standard in which the elder of the village wants but also helping teach some of the children some English.
I’m not asking much, but if you could spare just a couple of dollars I would really appreciate it. It is all for a really good cause and any extra money I raise I will use to buy school supplies to take over with me for the children in the villages. I will keep you all updated with the progress and when I do go over I will put up a post with lots of photos of what I did!
