I (Bobbiejade) have been accepted on to the Volunteer Eco Students Abroad Program and will be travelling to Fiji at the start of january to take part in an important sustainable community development project. I am seeking sponsorship to be able to participate in the program and complete essential volunteer work in a Fijian village.

VESA and I will work in conjunction with the villagers and the village chief in addressing the major issues faced by the village and the local schools such as a lack of fresh running water, dilapidated schools and generally poor infrastructure. Your donation will help to facilitate the means for implementing a major community development project, which will encompass construction in addition to educating the community on matters of conservation, sustainability, health/hygiene and English proficiency.

By sponsoring me, you will be directly assisting with the costs involved in participating in the program. These costs are significant and include hiring local skilled trades people to supervise and assist in the building projects, building materials and donations to local organizations. Every volunteer will complete a minimum of 40 hours of hands on community based volunteer work. I am also thinking of participating in the Fiji Marine Conservation Project which adds an extra week of volunteer work.

I would appreciate donations of any amount, which will enable me to participate in this vital community development program. Whilst VESA is a volunteer organisation, it is not a registered charity so donations will not be tax deductible.sorry.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to make a difference donating their time and energy into volunteering overseas this summer. If you are able to help, even in the smallest way it would be greatly appreciated.  

For more information on the VESA program please visit www.vesabroad.com or contact them on 02 8005 6755

Thank you for your consideration,

Bobbiejade
