My name is Clarissa and I am 26 years old.
From August 2018 on I will be volunteering for an amazing project called "Amor en la Calle" in San José, Costa Rica. This wonderful organization has set the goal to fight poverty, to give children a safe place, provide them with Basic needs and a new home. Moreover it wants to enable a reintegration into society by education.
For one year I will have the unique opportunity to teach English to children who live on the margins of society. By that, I hope to enable them a better future and the possibility to escape from their situation.
While the German development ministry (Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung (BMZ)) is covering 75% of the costs (incl. transport, accomodation, food, insurance, seminars,...), the remaining 25% have to be financed by my German sending organization VISIONEERS e.V., a non-profit association. I want this to be a lasting opportunity on both ends and I'm therefore supporting Visioneers in the collection of donations. In my case, 25% amounts to 3000€ (~ $3.500), i.e. ~ $290 per month.
This is where I need your help. If you agree that education is a promising means to enable a better future, I'd be more than grateful if you decided to support my mission with a small donation via the link below. Every dollar helps :)
Help me to reach my aim of a more just world - donate now !
