My name is Sarah, and I am a first year student currently studying Environment, Resources and Sustainability at the University of Waterloo. As part of this program, we are encouraged to spend time learning more about issues that are occurring within the environment and how cultures, ecosystems and communities are affected. During our summer off after first year, we are encouraged to put our learning into practice, and I am happy to say that I will be doing so in BOLIVIA!
I am very excited to be leaving for Bolivia on May 23, through a Toronto-based organization called Operation Groundswell! I will be participating in a 40 day backpacking program that focuses on environmental and human rights issues in the region. As Operation Groundswell says, I will be "Backpacking with a Purpose". While in Bolivia, I will be living and working alongside various organizations, farmers and families in city and rural communities, in order to learn about trade justice, how community-based initiatives are being used to confront climate change, and how some Bolivian communities are working towards sustainable lifestyles.
What I like about Operation Groundswell is that not only will the funds I raise go towards this experience, but also directly to the communities I will be visiting, in order to aid Bolivian organizations in continuing to pursue the amazing work that they have already begun in their communities.
A HUGE thank you to Jacob Moon for his willingness to hold fundraiser-based concerts that contribute to meaningful causes, on top of bringing awesome live music to members of our community!
