Hey everyone!

Thank you for taking the time out to read my fund raising page :) 

I've been lucky enough to secure a place on a volunteering trip to Bali! The trip is 2 weeks long and we depart on July 2nd 2017.

For the first week, I will be teaching basic English to children aged 4 and 5 in kindergarten. This will enable the children to have a head start on their English education before they begin formal schooling.

During my second week in Bali, I will work on a project dedicated to Turtle Conservation on the small island of Nusa Penida.  

The team will help to protect endangered sea turtles and keep equipment clean, as well as assist with pro active conservation efforts by ways of; beach clean ups and educating locals about the issues facing Indonesian sea turtles, while emphasizing what can be done to help. 

For the duration of my trip,I will document everything in the form of pictures, videos and diary entries which I will summarize in a blog post. If anyone would like to check out what I was up to, do let me know and I’ll forward you the link once done!

This is a great volunteering experience on offer, but the sad part is the cost of flights, transfers and visas. The original estimated cost of the trip was £950 but with all fees included I would be looking at around £1,500. I have applied for the bursary of £400 that is available with this trip, but aim to fund raise some money to help towards the final cost.

Thanks again for taking the time to check out my fundraiser!
ALL money left over will be donated to the Turtle Conservation Centre in Nusa Penida.
