Hello lovely people! Firstly thank you so very much for visiting my page, your time and generosity is very appreciated.

I have decided to follow my so long thought about ambitions and do my part to aid in changing the world! So I have volunteered to teach underprivillaged children in Cape Town how to swim, surf and teach them english by assisting in schools over there. In January 2017 I will be venturing to Cape Town for 2 weeks to volunteer and change the lives of children who so desperatly need to learn life skills that could impact their lives greatly. My accomodation includes living in a underprivlaged community amongst the challenging living conditions these kids face everyday. My day to day schedule includes teaching basic life skills, basic education and also incoperating outdoor education. My passion for the ocean and being able to teach these children to swim and surf brings me so much excitement! My participation in this project is completly voluntary which means its necessary to fundraise so i am able to change the lives of Cape Town children! I have covered the tuition fee's and most of the programme costs by myself but however much i wish i could, i can't do it alone! This project aims to teach children valuable life lessons such as leadership through outdoor activities(mainly swimming and surfing) and intimate education. I am so incredibly passionate about being able to help people and change lives, leading on to myself completing a nursing degree when I return from this project!

Hopefully it is understandable how much this project means to me! I also believe that every child should have the skills to be able to swim and have a chance of education so any contributions you wonderful people could give would be indescribably helpful and i would be so eternally grateful.

Thank you so very much and I promise I will send you a postcard! :) Lots of love!!!
