My name is Taylor Piotrowski I’m 16 years old, and am active volunteer in both my school and my community. I’ve been interested in helping people since I was a child and will continuously do my part in making a change. This year I have been awarded the exciting opportunity to travel to East Africa with ME TO WE. During May 2015. I will embark on a life changing trip to Kenya and will work in a local community, to happily contribute a minimum of 60 hours of volunteering.

I am extremely excited to spend a short but rewarding period of time volunteering abroad as I immerse myself in another culture, and give back to those who need my help. I’m traveling with the organization ME TO WE, and will be volunteering in communities along with their charity partner Free The Children. My trip entails working in a social community development project to invest in the lives of disadvantaged locals.

My team will

    • work side-by-side with communities on development projects

    • lay bricks that will become a community school

    • dig wells that will provide clean water

    • plant crops that will grow into nourishing food

In addition I will walk in the local’s footsteps and experience the diverse sights and sounds of a new culture.

I am looking forward to the amazing experiences that this trip offers me, however the costs that are associated with participating in this excursion are extremely high. The total cost for traveling and volunteering in such country as Kenya, is a minimum of $5500, which is not including my travel insurance or my vaccinations that are needed. I’m currently looking for help with my fundraising and would be grateful if you could assist me through a donation. The money accepted will help cover the costs ranging from my accommodations, meals, project fees, ground transportation, and flights. It will provide me and the organization with the funds needed to run these projects, and to build a community out of poverty.

Thank you in advance for supporting my desire to impact our world through volunteering! If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact me.
