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.

In August 2017, I will be working with Aspire Sports Trust's Aspire to Africa project, to help improve the education of a school in Tanzania through sport.
Our aims are to go over to the school with resources, Sports Equipment, text books and Games to help improve the education in the school.
The Aspire to Africa project was established in 2010. Its mission is to develop and educate schools and local communities in Africa through physical activity and sport. The project also aims to help develop personal skills such as teamwork, interpersonal abilities and leadership.
We send a team to Africa on an annual basis to work with schools, providing them with sports equipment and educational resources. The Aspire to Africa team will use the equipment and resources, combined with their expertise to educate the teachers and the children of the schools, ensuring that the project creates a lasting legacy that uses sport to develop life changing opportunities.
Funds are raised to help support the project as well as purchasing equipment and educational resources for the African schools.
Children and schools in the UK benefit too! We develop links between the African schools and the schools we work with in the UK and have a policy to invite schools to send their staff on the trip. This helps add a global dimension to their curriculum, broaden pupils' awareness of global issues in a meaningful way and enhance curricular learning.
The funds will be used to help with the cost of equipment, resources and travel to Africa. In the hope we can help children learn through sport
