Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
I'm a profoundly deaf 16 year old BSL user. I've successfully adapted to an oral school. I am very interested in other countries and communnities 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).

About the fundraiser
Sheffield, United Kingdom
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.
