My name is Rhianna Wesson and I'm a Year 11 student in Sussex. I'm going on a World Challenge! The challenge is to raise enough money to do voluntary work in northern Thailand. I'll be helping support a community in Thailand, by building a school, or doing some agricultural work. I'll be participating alongside people within the village - a great chance to learn how Thai people live, and to become involved in their culture and immerse myself in their way of life.

As well as all this, the team and I will be treking through Khao Yai National Park - an adventure through thick forest learning how to survive among natural pests, and beauties. I will be there for two weeks in all, with a group of around 15 students like me, a couple of teachers, and leaders from the World Challenge organisation. You can read about them here: www.world-challenge.co.uk

Although I have a lot of work to do - fundraising for example - I also need to get in shape for the demanding itinerary, and study for my GCSEs. I think the experience will be worth it, though - I will have learnt loads about finance, fundraising, health, Thailand, and travel before I even get on the plane! But also, to be in the forest, work with a team, improve lives, meet Thai people, and learn self-reliance are exciting prospects. The whole expedition will be undeniably scary... and  life-changing.

I have to raise a huge amount to pay for the flights, accommodation and supplies: £2,295. Fundraising this much by June is a huge job! So, I am appealing for any donations, however small, to help me along. I have begun fundraising myself by baking cakes and washing cars, and plan to do car boot sales, make rings to sell, quizzes, sponsored runs and anything else I can think of in the future! Your donation would be such a huge gift to me and the cause... I hope to make the trip worthwhile for all involved.

Thanks so much for checking this page out - and for your support.
