My name is Gilly. My daughter Anaiah and I are fundraising so we can go and serve in an orphanage in Peru for three months.

Main image

Our desire is to support 4 - 18 year old's who have lost their parents due to complications caused by poverty, disease, family violence or simple abandonment.

Our role will be to work alongside these children and help them with;

Teaching Basic English

Helping students with their homework

Planning and leading extracurricular activities such as dancing, singing, drawing, painting, playing sports,

Teaching children about health and personal hygiene

Teaching computer classes

Helping take children on field trips

Teaching life skills and daily tasks such as cleaning, cooking, business skills, getting dressed, sewing, gardening, etc

Assisting in orphanage and school administrations with daily tasks

With so many deserving and heart felt causes to support, we hope our goal resonates with you. We would love your financial support in any way possible. For the prayerful, we would also love your prayers.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and for your wonderful support.

Use of funds

The money raised will be used for the following:

Flights to Cusco, Peru, host family and orphanage donation, insurance, transfers and admin costs to IFRE Volunteer Agency.

If we are blessed with surplus funds, these will go to the orphanage.

Every little bit helps  5 June 2019

Hi everyone

June is here already (where did April and May go?) and we haven't quite reached our monetary goal with our various fundraising initiatives.

So the fundraising continues. Fortunately flights and dates of departure are fluid.

HUGE thanks to everyone that has contributed one way or another to date.
