Hi everyone, I’m very, very excited to announce that I’ll be heading off to India with World Vision Australia!
I’m going over with three other talented bloggers, Eden Reily from Edenland, Carly Jacobs from Smaggle and Kelly from Be a Fun Mum, to cover World Vision’s women’s and children’s development programs in the state of Chhatisgarh, in central India. We will also be joined on the trip by World Vision’s social media manager Joy Toose.

Over the ten days in India we will be visiting a number of World Vision Area Development Programs (ADPs) in both urban and rural areas.
I’ll be photo blogging the journey on a daily basis, using my phone and Instagram to show you all where we are and what we are doing. I’ll be cross posting my Instagram feed right here on this site and my Tumblr for those not on Instagram.
For those of you that don’t know, I’ve been a World Vision Child Sponsor for over twelve years now, first starting when I was just out of high-school. I’m genuinely excited to see how these programs - that I’ve known so well through cards, letters and photos - actually work at ground level.
As I’m travelling I’m more than open to any questions you may have about the journey and World Vision’s programs.
Wish us luck!
