£720raised of £1,650 target by 17 supporters

    Funded on Saturday, 4th February 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I'm a profoundly deaf 16 year old BSL user. I've successfully adapted to a deaf school that uses speech only. I am very interested in other countries and communities and how they cope with their lack of resources.

    I'm currently doing 'A' Levels in Maths, Further Maths and Science.

    This 3 week trip to Nepal in July 2017 is a fantastic opportunity for myself to enrich my personal development and to become a global citizen.

    We will be giving support to a third world community. With a group of Deaf VoluntEars I will be immersed in the wonders of Nepal, go trekking in the Himalayas, live in a remote mountain community and volunteer in a school.

    I'll be supported by Voluntears a charity that helps deaf people volunteer overseas (http://www.voluntears.info/)

    I'd like to thank Eric & Greta Barthmolomew, George Uldemollins and Catherine McGowan for donating a grand total of £100 to help start my fundraising on a previous JustGiving page (now expired).

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!

    I need to raise over £1,750 to go to Nepal to trek in the Himalayas, to live in a remote mountain community and volunteer in a school. All this will help broaden my global citizenship. It will be interesting to find out what it's like to go vegetarian for a few weeks.
