Dear Family and Friends,
I hope you are doing well! I want to let you know about an amazing opportunity I have to travel with a team of teachers to Africa this summer! We will be providing professional development training for teachers in Rwanda, and I will be introducing ultrasound training to this area as well.
As we spend time with educators and community leaders we will also gain an understanding of the challenges they face and learn from their experiences. I am sure the learning will be mutual and many relationships will be established.
We will be learning about the history and culture of the community in which we will work, and I will be looking for ways that I can bring this experience into other areas that could benefit from developing connections with us wherever possible. Poverty affects each country in a variety of ways. I am so excited for this opportunity to be of service, sharing my passion for teaching and ultrasound and helping children, while exploring new places!
Each team member has been asked to raise funds to cover the expenses and resources for this service opportunity. I am wondering if you would like to be a part of my support team and help me raise these funds? This is a volunteer service trip facilitated by the non-profit organization INGAGE UNLIMITED. All contributions are 501(c)3 tax-deductible donations, and they can be made online at http://ingageunlimited.org/donate. Just select the Rwanda project, Future Teams, and then you can put your donation amount in the field next to my name. Your donation will assist with our travel and provide support for the teachers, families, ultrasound equipment and students with whom we engage along the way. I will also be sending out pictures, and video updates following the trip to share about our experience. Please let me know if you have any questions!
Thank you so much for your consideration.
With love and gratitude,
