In 2012 I started a journey through Central and South America. Prior to setting off I spent 18 months setting up links with a children’s charity in each of the 11 countries I planned to travel. The idea was simple: Travel and volunteer. I myself was adopted at the age of five and so the desire to improve the lives of children is one which is close to my heart. That idea has now grown into a project that has two children in our child sponsorship program in Oaxaca, Mexico, sends monthly funding to cover costs of anything from HIV medication to clothing and more in Belize and has purchased educational tools in Honduras to name just a few. This all down to your generous support.
The first leg of the trip (Mexico to Honduras) was over 6000kms on atv, before switching to canoe and finally the one which was calling me all along, 12 months and 4000 miles on horseback from Colombia to Peru, which in a way is where the story began.
Now back in the UK preparing for the next leg, I am enjoying seeing the hard work and the support that you have given have a positive effect on lives around the world. The organisations I work with are fantastic, no agenda, just providing a chance to those in need and doing their best to have only a beneficial impact on the communities they serve.
