My Travel Story

by: Kiera Kubacki Start Date: Apr 14, 2017 - End Date: Aug 13, 2017
This is an opportunity of a life time, its more than building my resume, completing a univeristy subject, or taking the holiday to remember - it is going to impact my life and the life of the children in India in a way that can't even be explained. It will be a challenge, the work will be tiring and the environment will make things difficult, but the skills I will develop, the friendships I will forge and the impact I will have on the young lives of the Bangalore community will make it all the more worth it. 
The Globe projects aim to mobilise students like myself to assist in the development and implementation of 40K PLUS. This enables 40K Globe to make more impact on communities and enables myself to experience the vehicle and social enterprise.
I will be responsible for finding a space in the village for the PLUS pod, source required materials and set up the classroom infrastructure. A PLUS Pod is a rented room in a village where children come for 75 minutes after school for an intense English Program. Each Pod can accommodate 50 children per village. Imagine the amount of young lives this initiative can impact!

$400 of the donations will be directly donated to the 40K program itself which will go towards other expenses as part of allowing the program to continue in its operations.
