Last week I was accepted to volunteer to teach English to elementary and high school children in the foothills of the Himalayas in Annapurna, Nepal. I’ll be working with a non-profit organization committed to raising the educational standards of school age children in this part of the world: “Trek To Teach.” This organization has already established teaching programs in 6 communities and will kick off programs in several more communities in 2016. It’s also raising money to rebuild schools that were devastated by the earthquake in Nepal last April.
But I can’t handle this teaching venture on my own, I need your help. I need to raise $9,000 US to fund my three-month journey. This money will pay for my teaching expenses. It will go to pay for my travel to Kathmandu and Annapurna. It will pay for my basic living expenses during my stay in Nepal. “Trek To Teach” will use some of this money to pay for curriculum materials and teaching supplies.
I’m asking you to contribute whatever you can to help cover my out-of-pocket expenses. You can be assured that your contribution is helping to make a material difference in the lives of hundreds of school age children who simply would not have the opportunity to learn English from a native English speaker otherwise. And, of course, it will help me have one of the most thrilling experiences in my life.

Thanks in advance for your help.
