Happy Halloween!! Sophie is exploring our Borneo Camps this week so you have me again...its Rachael! So even though it is halloween and there are probably loads of you having parties and big evening events, Benji has a great story that just goes to show that the little events, persistance and a bit of hard work are just as effective as the larger fundraising events! Most of you are enjoying your half term at the moment, so I will let Benji tell you all about his fundraising...

Our volunteers have been tirelessly building an emergency ward in Muhaka dispensary since January 2013. The aim of this project was to provide a place where serious patients would be able to be admited and receive sufficient medical treatment from proffessional Doctors and Nurses. I thought by sharing this bit of story and inspirational achievement done so far by our volunteers, will make your day a nice one……
You know when you have those weeks when you cannot wait for the weekend? This is definitely one of those for me, but only because I am taking some of your lovely teachers on a recce to Borneo on Saturday! SO EXCITING! I am rather sad that I won’t be able to chat to you guys next week, but it means next time you call I can help give you a better idea of what to expect on expedition!!!
A few weeks ago Mariani, our operations Manager and I registered to attend a 3 day International Conference to be held at Sutera Harbour in town. It is the 8th Asia Pacific Conference (APECO) to be attended by over 200 delegates from 19 countries including Malaysia organised by Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA).
Last week I received the BEST EMAIL EVER, not even joking… An email about free shoes or chocolate could not have put a bigger grin on my face!
I love fundraising, and I love hearing from you guys! So when I receive an email specifically to tell me about your fundraising, it makes me the happiest girl in the world! Especially when it’s about an event that I would LOVE to go to!

We,ve just had a fantastic week in Tanzania with the American Community School Abu Dhabi. The team was great and everyone was dedicated to give back to the community.This is what they had to say.....
We have had several community service trips through our ACS school Abu Dhabi, but this year our service trip to Tanzania with Camps International have been a truly life changing for all of us. The things we did and the experiences we had were eye-opening.
As promised, for those of you who didn't fall asleep in part 1 of my Asia adventures, here is the second part about my favourite place I've been to so far - Camp Cambodia! (shorter I promise!)
From what you guys have learnt about me in the past few weeks, you’ve probably realized I’m not a particularly conventional person to say the least! So, I must say my favourite holiday is Halloween; it is the best day of the year, and I want to get you guys ready for a bit of Halloween fundraising!
I know it’s three weeks away and you’re probably thinking, ‘just chill Sophie’! BUT three weeks is the perfect amount of time to plan an amazing Halloween fundraiser… I’m just trying to help you guys out!
