I have a unique opportunity to go on an international placement to Santa Clara, Cuba, from April 25 to May 24, as part of my Community Worker program at George Brown. This placement is in collaboration with ICAP (Instituto Cubano de Amistad con los Pueblos) of Cuba, or "The Cuban Instititue of Friendship with the People". This will be the experience of a lifetime, and I am very grateful to have been accepted for this placement. 

In order for me to get to Cuba I must fundraise $2400, which will cover the cost of my flight, accommodations, meals, and supplies being donated to local community organizations.

While there, I will be living and working amongst local Cubans developing community projects, and meeting with representatives from various organizations within the community-building sector such as health, food justice, sustainable development and human rights. 

Skills and goals I've outlined for my placement are to practice team-building skills, plan fundraising events, adapt and communicate across cultural boundaries and increase cross-cultural experiences, and compare the social services delivery of Canada and Cuba.

Thanks for your support,

Roxana
