Firstly let me introduce myself…. My name is Skye Paine. I am a 14 year old student and have been given an amazing opportunity by an organization called Camps International to go on a 4 week exhibition in the summer of 2024 to Peru. I believe there is a possibility I will be out there for my (16th) birthday, exact date yet to be confirmed. It will be a life changing, very beneficial and educational trip. During my time there I will help and get an understanding of the community and culture. I will be getting involved in community based product work and contributing to making the community better for the people who live there. I will be building stable housing including schools to help improve education, this will include building toilet blocks to help with sanitation and I will also help with providing the flow of clean water. Nearing the end of the exhibition I will be participating in a 4 day trek to see Machu Picchu, stopping/camping at several different camps along the way. This exhibition not only benefits the community but also helps me develop my leadership, communication and team skills as well as getting me involved in the peruvian culture. All these skills will benefit me later in life and to further my education and widen my horizon for job opportunities. The cost of the exhibition is £4180 which I have to raise/fundraise. Any contribution would be very much appreciated and in return I will post and keep you updated and informed of my journey and all events that are held along the way and my success stories.
