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.
As you probably already know I'm heading off to Fiji at the end of September. It may be more synonymous with paradise than poverty but the reality is that in rural villages, over 75% of families live below the poverty line and only 50% of the rural population have access to safe drinking water and proper sanitation.
I will be living within the community of a rural village on Kadavu Island, Fiji for 2 months, and teaching in the local school. The schools are in poor conditions with no basic materials leading many children to drop out early therefore I will be working alongside teachers and government aims to improve education and provide access to youth schemes, sport and extra-curricular activities.
Every penny of the money I raise on here will go directly towards the charity: resources for the school, kindi and sports; teacher training programs; health workshops and medical provision; ongoing cyclone relief. Any extra I raise above my target will help towards my volunteer costs :) Honestly any donation even if its 50p will be really appreciated, it all adds up! Thank you SO much xxxx
