My Travel Story

Hi all! I am currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Texas at Dallas studying communication disorders. Based on my academic achievements and strong interest in dedicating time to the enrichment of others, I have been provided the opportunity to volunteer for a Therapy Abroad program in Belize. I am looking to raise $2,300 for this cause. 

I ask you to support me so that I can provide speech therapy to children in Belize. Your donation will go towards travel expenses and additional training which counts as course credit. Just a small amount can help me achieve this goal. 

Providing therapy abroad will offer challenging, yet valuable experiences and essential qualities that will surpass the limits of a traditional classroom. More importantly, this experience will allow me to positively influence the lives of children experiencing developmental delays and educate others by spreading awareness and support to improve the quality of life of individuals winthin the community. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me either by phone or email.

Thank you!

Kristin
