Greetings, and welcome to Vaishu's Global Service Leadership 2020: Capetown, South Africa! Thank you so much for visiting my fundraising page to learn more about my mission and my trip.
The YMCA has been a large part of my life for the past few years and working with the YMCA Teen Leaders Club has allowed me to immerse myself in various aspects of my community. This year, I am honored to be selected for the Global Service Leadership trip in Capetown, South Africa to make a difference with other YMCA peers during the summer.
Whether is planning day camps, assisting the Y with community needs, or anything else to help enhance the experience of the YMCA to others, this program will allow me to expand my impact from a local to global context. This excursion will also help my team and me explore and develop leadership and collaborative skills with memorable experiences and interactions with other communities and problems. I firmly believe that the experience of working alongside with fellow teen leaders to solve a greater problem will shape me into more of a global citizen.
During this trip, I will continue my non-profit project of Philanthropic Philms to raise awareness of service missions and share my volunteering experience to my community.
However, in order to travel to South Africa, I need to raise $3,000 by May 1st, 2020. With your help, I can accomplish a life-long goal of mine and travel abroad to serve. No amount is too small to help reach my goals so any donation size is valuable.
Thank you so much for your support!
