Hi my name is Alyssa Ditchburn and I am a 2nd year college student taking a program called Biotechnology Technologist - Forensics in order for me to become a laboratory technician. I will be travelling to Africa for 2 weeks in May as I was acccepted to take part in an important sustainable community development project with VESA which is a Volunteer Eco Students Abroad Program. I will be travelling to South Africa, Kwa-Zulu  Natal, and Swaziland.

VESA and I will be working together with the villagers and village chief to address the major issues that African villagers are faced with. This includes a lack of fresh running water, dilapidated schools and a generally poor infrastructure.

By sponsoring me, you will be directly assisting with the costs involved in participating in the program, and these costs are significant as they include hiring local skilled trades people to supervise and assist in the building projects, building materials and donations to local organizations. I will be completing a minimum of 40 hours of hands on community based volunteer work.

I would appreciate donations of any amount, which will enable me to participate in this vital community development program.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity by being able to help out the best way that I can, and using skills learned from my schooling to help make a difference in the world.

If you are able to help, even in the smallest way it would be greatly appreciated. :)
