POD is a non-profit organisation that helps volunteers (like myself) to travel overseas and take part in projects around the world including teaching, childcare, animal care, conservation and community building. I am volunteering with POD next year and will be taking part in 5 projects: Amazon rainforest conservation & research in Peru, Big 5 and Elephant Conservation & research in South Africa, Wildlife conservation in Madagascar and Marine research & conservation in Thailand.
The money I am raising will go to the charity POD Volunteer as a whole, not just to the projects that I will be attending. To be able to take part in the projects, I do have an amount, set by POD, that I have to raise, but this will not be used to fund the personal expences, such as flights. Please donate generously as not only will this allow me to realise the dream of a lifetime, but also fund the excellent charities that I will be working with.
