Jessica and Darby will be traveling to Nepal with DWC in November, 2018. They'll be working with like-minded volunteers who want to give a struggling family a hand up not a hand out. The plan is to build a small home for Nauni, a 34 year old single mother with a daughter and son. It will be a basic block house with tin roof, not much by most standards, but it offers a safe and stable environment to raise her children and will make a big difference. Your contribution will buy materials in-country and assist Jessica and Darby to make this a reality. Supporters who contribute $20 or more will be issued a tax receipt.

This will be my second year heading to Sri Lanka to give back. The experience I had last year was life changing and I'm looking forward to going back this year and being able to help many other's lives. This fundraising page is specifically to raise the rest of the money for my flights and I'm looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish this time around.

Hi! My name is Jacqueline and this will be my first volunteer trip with Developing World Connections. Hopefully my first of many! From July 7th to 21st I’ll be in Kenya with my mom Terry-Lynn, my sister Kara-Leigh, and my nephew Trystan, helping to build a vegetable garden at a school where many children only eat one meal a day. Three months ago I had the pleasure of following along with my mom & dad’s trip, through DWC, to Sri Lanka where they helped rebuild a family’s home who lost everything in the floods. At the time I was traveling through Europe and it hit me - I’m doing this all wrong!! I want to travel with a purpose. I want to leave a place a little bit better off then when I arrived there. I want to find peace and purpose in serving others who are less fortunate than myself. If you’d like to donate towards my cause I’d be forever grateful! Every little bit helps! Thank-you from the bottom of my heart.
