Hello everyone, I am Gerald Sarmiento, 29, a Filipino expat living in Doha Qatar!
I am happy to share that I will be taking part of global volunteer program for GoEco Organization which will bring me to Cape Town, South Africa on April 2017 to teach children English among others.
I have been an avid traveller and a volunteer worker in my younger years and share a deep passion in volunteerism and community development. In 2011, I went to Russia to teach children in a summer camp and it sparked my interest to get more involved in community projects and be a staunch believer that being of service to others transcends cultural and financial boundaries. Everyone can do his or her own fair share to make a difference in the society.
I am looking forward to learn more not only about myself but more on the culture of South Africa being completely different from where I came from (Philippines) and where I've been based for the past 7 years (Qatar). I am excited to share my experience and knowledge to the people whom I will be meeting on this experience.
I hope that through your generosity, you will make my mission a success and join me in bringing hope to these children and promote international camaraderie. Let's make it happen!
