£295raised of £500 target by 19 supporters

    Weʼve raised £295 to help provide laboratory equipment and resources for Namphungo Day School, Malawi

    Funded on Tuesday, 20th December 2016

    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.


    For seven years now, a team of us have been raising funds to support Namphungo Community Day Secondary School in rural Malawi. Thanks to regular and one-off contributors, the School now has a science lab, for the first time ever offering students the chance to properly learn science. The challenge now is to supply the equipment and materials to bring it into full use.
    Mr Mukhula (Head of Science) and Mr Tambala (Headteacher) have drawn up a comprehensive list of requirements which they need to make the most of the new lab. The estimated cost is likely to be in excess of £1000. There is very little state funding for schools in Malawi, so they are relying on our assistance to help them get the resources to make this happen.
    So ... I am participating in the Glasgow Santa Dash on Sunday 11 December. I will be running 5K dressed as Santa, complete with beard and hat, in the hope that you will make a contribution towards the Malawi science lab in return. My husband Richard is also taking part and is crowdfunding another £500 to go to the science lab.
    Every donation will make a difference to educational opportunities for the students of Namphungo. Please do give whatever you feel you can. Many thanks - zikomo!
