Over the past few years, I’ve found myself wanting to dedicate time to volunteer work. Reflecting on my childhood, I’ve been so fortunate to have been provided easy access to quality education. I knew that a passion to help people combined with a desire to share my knowledge with others would make an overseas volunteer expedition very rewarding. I knew my ‘Why?’ and my ‘Where?’, but I was constantly caught on my ‘How?’.
Through my teen years I found myself constantly taking for granted little things in my every day. Often now, I stop and think how lucky I am to have been brought up with so many opportunities. All my life I’ve been blessed with easy access to quality education, clean water, nutritious food and safe shelter. For so many people around the world, these blessings are partially or completely out of reach.
I’m at a point in my life now where there will be no better time to enrich my perspective, nor is there any better time than the present to make a difference. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to contribute to children in rural India having access to quality education and I can’t wait to get started!
I established very early on that I would love to volunteer in India after researching their culture and that it is a country I have always wanted to visit. I have always wanted to visit India however I knew that I would be overwhelmed by an urge to help out. So I figured…what better way to see India than to do it enriching the lives of those in need.
‘How?’ is where I had been stuck until I read about 40K Globe! 40K Globe is a not-for-profit organisation that works with 40K Plus in India. 40K Plus is a social enterprise that works to provide quality education to primary-aged children in rural India.
My trip with 40K begins at the end of June and I am stoked to be a part of a community contributing to social impact. As participant in the 40K program I have pledged to raise $500 which goes directly to funding the operation and ongoing success of 40K Plus. To help me reach my pledge, donate at https://40kgroup.raisely.com/emmapinfold.
