    Weʼve raised £250 to Get Matty to Peru

    Funded on Thursday, 30th March 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.


    On 16th July 2017, I have been given the chance to travel to Peru for a month with Richmond School and Camps International. However we have to fundraise £4,170 just for the trip itself. IT is going to be such a worthwhile experience and it will be a once in a life time opportunity.
    While they are there we will be volunteering and helping within the local communities in three high sierra regions of Peru: Colca, Moray and Titicaca. While they are there they will also be taking part in project work, which will revolve around the improvement of school infrastructure, tourism development, village or agricultural infrastructure like building greenhouses to help the crops grow, teaching of English and ICT and playing sports with local children. These are really important projects not just for us, but the local community because it will help to improve their lives’ in a substantial way. Even though the projects vary from each trip, they will be still aiming to improve their lives in their own different ways.
    Towards the end of the trip, we will be going on a five-mile trek up the Salkantay Trek, which leads to the top of Macchu Piccu. Where we will be put through their paces.
    Upon our return on the 13th August I would like to share our experience with you all, with pictures and stories about projects in which we have undertaken.
