Dear Friend,

In a nutshell, from mid-August 2016 I will work for one year as a volunteer with mentally disabled children in the school Colegio Parroquial Nuestro Salvador in Peru. 
http://www.nuestrosalvador.edu.pe/
The costs of the voluntary project are only partly covered by the German Ministry (BMZ). As part of my participation in the voluntary project, I am required to raise the remaining 2580 euro myself. Your tax-deductible donation of any amount will greatly help me to approach this goal. To express my warm gratitude for the support I would like to share my impressions about my voluntary work in Peru with you.

Each one of us can make a difference. TOGETHER we can make a CHANGE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Milena

Pssst…my voluntary project is NOT A SECRET! Tell your friends about it! It will help too, to promote the voluntary project.

Are there still questions remaining in your curious mind? Then please read below:
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
My one-year voluntary project will take place in the school Colegio Parroquial Nuestro Salvador located in the district of Lima which is inhabited by people suffering from poverty. The school brings together healthy and mentally disabled pupils amongst whom are children with different diseases such as Down syndrome and autism. The aim is to provide a balanced education and facilitate the integration into society for the kids with special needs. The school pursues to raise social awareness and respect for the needs of others.
My voluntary project is organized within the confines of ‘’Weltwärts’’ program together with the sending organization Welthaus Bielefeld.

WHAT ARE THE AIMS OF THIS VOLUTARY WORK?
As a volunteer I will help the kids with special needs during their classes. Moreover, together with the teachers, I will develop artisanal and artistic workshops for the children to reinforce their independence und enhance their creativity.
The voluntary service gives not only the chance to contribute to a social project, but also sensitizes the participants to themes like poverty, inequality, racism, sustainable development and global relationships. Besides, active promotion of the voluntary project spreads the idea of social engagement in the society and makes others aware of problems existing in other countries.

HOW CAN I EXPRESS MY THANKS AND GRATITUDE TO YOU?
During my voluntary year I will be happy to stay in touch per email with you and share my impressions. Additionally, every 3 months you will receive from me official reports, in which I will describe the progress of my voluntary work in the school.

IS THE DONATION TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?
Yes, it is! You will receive a certificate for tax deduction in the first quarter of 2017.

EVERY DONATION COUNTS!
