My Travel Story

by: Alyssa McKee Start Date: Apr 9, 2018 - End Date: Jun 27, 2018
My desire is to serve in areas affected by natural or political disasters.
When I was deciding where I should go this summer I ran across news of Nepal's Gorkha earthquake: In 2015 Nepal suffered an earthquake recorded as a 7.8 on the Richter scale; nearly 600K structures were either damaged or ruined. What I planned to do was contribute my time and energy into a permanent structure that is needed by the community.
This July I am going to Nepal to help renovate a school near one of Kathmandu's largest slum areas. The school provides educational materials and teaching to children who would otherwise not be able to afford it. I am joining with Love Volunteers to give back to the school as well as give the students spaces conducive to learning and playing. As a student attending a public university, I am in need of financial assistance to achieve this goal. I hope that you join me in making my dreams a reality and enable me to go and serve in what way they require.
