My name is Eve and I am a student at Abbey College, Ramsey. I am raising money to enable me to participate in an expedition to Borneo in the summer of 2024. This will be a 4 week expedition and will include community development work, environmental projects and wildlife conservation. It will also include the opportunity to learn how to scuba dive and obtain a PADI qualification.The core objectives of this expedition are to undertake projects in order to:- Raise the living and educational standards of developing communities within a rural district of Borneo- Assist with ongoing wildlife conservation programs to preserve biodiversity and protect vulnerable habitats.This expedition is extremely important to me because I feel that I will acquire and develop many important life skills such as teaching English as a foreign language, team building, interacting with a variety of different people, improving the environment, experience new cultures and hopefully make friends for life! This will be a massive achievement for me personally as I need to raise the funds for the trip and haven’t stayed away from home for so long. I am really looking forward to the challenges involved, from raising the money myself, learning some environmentally friendly skills but will rise to the challenges and have an amazing experience.
