I'm raising funds in order to travel to Ecuador come the summer break in order to volunteer to build infrastructre for secluded communities near the Amazon (toilets and schoolrooms!). I'll be doing this trip with Volunteer Eco Students Abroad and I'm incredibly excited to do it, because it gives me the opportunity to both travel and give a little back at the same time (as well as improve my Spanish). I'm also hoping volunteering overseas will be good experience to draw on for a career in aid work, which is my eventual goal.

The plan is to try and use this fundraiser to partially cover the costs, the rest of which I aim to make through work and other fundraising activities, so despite the lofty goal, any amount at all would help me enormously. I hope you consider donating!
