Camp International, Local community, Peru,

Katie Peru

When local student Katie contacted us asking for help towards an impending trip of a lifetime to Peru, we were excited to learn all about it.

Camp International is a company that operates across four continents, solving global problems on a local scale, matching eager volunteers to communities that need man power and equipment to combat poverty. Volunteers are placed within in a local community to work on projects that will have a long lasting and life changing impact on the people that live there.

For four weeks Katie will become involved in projects that could include improving school and sanitation facilities, constructing much needed buildings such as greenhouses along with tourism development and environmental reforestation that addresses habitat issues, all very challenging but worthwhile projects.

Volunteers like Katie need to raise enough money to enable them to partake in the project, £4290 to be precise, 36% of which will go directly to the communities and projects. Katie has 2 years to raise this money and has been asking for sponsorship from local businesses like us, and holding lots of fundraising events from discos and cake sales, as well as selling unwanted items and car boot sales.

We were so happy to support Katie and have recently heard that she has now raised £2500 towards her total, this is an amazing amount and has taken a lot of hard work to get there, Katie is well on her way to her trip of a lifetime in Peru, but are the Peruvian people ready for her?!
