My Name is Emily Jones, and I am a 15 year old student participating in an expedition to Ecuador in July 2017. This will be a four-week expedition and will include development work, environmental projects and wildlife conservation.
The core objectives of this expedition are to undertake projects in order to:
Raise the educational standards of Ecuador, a developing country, from within its most rural districts.
Raise the living standards of the people of Ecuador, from within a rural community.
Assist with ongoing wildlife conservation programmes to preserve biodiversity and protect vulnerable habitats.
This is extremly important to me beacuse I would like to help those affected by the extremes of poverty and give them the opportunities to build a sustainable community in which they can strive for a better future.
I would be extremely grateful for any contribution you can make towards my fundraising. For my next challenge I will be completing the three peaks challenge in three days, climbing:
