What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

Around 37% (which is over 5m people) of Peru's rural population lack access to electricity. Many of these communities are located in remote areas, making it incredibly difficult and costly to connect them to the local distribution network.

Wind Aid Institute transforms the lives of people in rural communities in Peru, by providing them with access to electricity via renewable energy. Access to electricity has immediate health, education and security benefits.

I am joining Wind Aid Institute at Trujillo, north Peru on February 2017 working on a four weeks project. The project will involve the construction and the installation of a wind turbine, while also developing relationships with rural communities , understanding many of the challenges they face.

Wind Aid institute, which is supported by Engineers Without Borders, is not funded by grants or benefactors. It is the financial contribution of the volunteers , that will enable them to buy the materials required to build and install the wind turbines. Subsequently they can provide , install and maintain wind turbines at rural communities in Peru , who cannot afford to financially contribute towards a network connection.

I will be funding the trip myself & all donations raised will go directly to the charity.
