Hi friends! My name is Sarah O’Leary and I am a 2nd year Business and Law student in UCD. This summer I have been selected to take part in UCD Volunteers Overseas South-East India project. UCD Volunteers Overseas has worked alongside the international NGO Care and Share to run two children’s orphanages based outside the city of Vijayawada in the Andhra Pradesh region since 2010. These children have been abandoned as a result of HIV/AIDS and severe poverty. For the last six years, UCD volunteers have worked for 4 week periods living in the children’s homes organising youth clubs, awareness campaigns, sports camps, teaching children and sharing educational skills with the staff/teachers, while physiotherapist students who are part of our team provide their services in the nearby clinic. I am covering all my travel expenses however I would really appreciate some help in raising the remainder, which goes directly towards our project such as providing school supplies, renovating classrooms and the children’s homes and so much more. I would be extremely grateful for any donation to this project no matter how small. The money donated on this page goes direct to UCDVO and towards my contribution to our overall target. More information about UCDVO’s incredible work and specific details about the project I am involved in can be found here http://www.ucdvo.org/projectsoverseas/vijayawadaindia/ Thanks for taking the time to have a read and for any support given!
