This summer, I will be returning to the Dominican Republic (DR) for a FOURTH time as a volunteer mentor with AYUDA. I am so grateful for the oppurtunity to continue to change the lives of children in the Dominican Republic. Together with AYUDA's in-country partner organization, Apendiendo a Vivir (AAV - learning to live) and my fellow volunteers, we will organize diabetes education initiatives, such as Campo Amigo, for youth living with diabetes. Although I do not have type one diabetes myself, this cause means a lot to me because of the meaningful experiences I have had with AYUDA and the positive change we have made.
AYUDA is a non-profit volunteer organization that empowers youth to serve as agents of change in diabetes communities around the world. AYUDA is dedicated to supporting local diabetes communities in their development and implementation of sustainable and global diabetes programs. AYUDA’s innovative peer learning model uses international volunteers as catalysts for empowering local youth living with diabetes to live happy and healthy lives.
AYUDA endeavors to remain a grassroots volunteer organization in a unique way: by asking its volunteers to participate in fundraising for their programs. In fact, without fundraising by volunteers like me, AYUDA’s in-country work would not be possible.
For more information about AYUDA and its important work, please visit their website. (www.ayudainc.net )
I will be traveling to the Dominican Republic in July, but my journey has already begun! I need YOUR help to reach my fundraising goal of $6,500! Please support me and the organization I am passionate about by making a contribution. Every little bit helps, and it would mean so much to me.
