Weʼve raised £385 to Help poor communities in Kochi, Southern India
- International volunteering
- Time left
- Funded on Tuesday, 31st January 2017
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.
In February 2017 with your help I will be travelling to Kochi, in southern India, with some other students from my school as part of a World Challenge expedition, to help the less advantaged communities & children living there. The poorer communities rely greatly on our help and these type of expeditions. Whilst there we shall be helping where we are needed most, whether that's building, restoring buildings, building facilities or creating safe play areas for children.
The aim is to help the families and children living there have a safer and better environment. Previous expeditions have undertaken a variety of projects, they have renovated an orphanage to create a warm, dry and safe home for them, they have built separate toilets for boys and girls so that girls weren't being kept back from school and built a playground.
Please, please, PLEASE help me to raise the money I will need for such a good cause. I really want to help people less fortunate than me and this will be a great experience for me but will most DEFINITELY NOT be a holiday!! It really will be a challenge but it is a challenge I feel very strongly about carrying out.
Any donations that I receive will be greatly appreciated. I have been raising money myself by doing bake sales and selling items but now I really do need your help!!
