Weʼre raising £3,000 to go on an expedition to Namibia with World Challenge and my school.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Through a company called World Challenge I and a group of 17 and 18yr olds from my school will be going to Namibia. The trip will include a community project; working alongside the local people. The project phases of previous expeditions have included the renovation of a school; helping them build classrooms, as well as painting, construction, conservation and teaching.
This trip is designed to benefit the local community as well as teach our team valuable life skills such as leadership, communication and teamwork.
We each have the task of raising £3499 through fundraising to cover costs. I have arranged several events with my team, including a disco, bake sale, 4 day sponsored walk along the Ridgeway, market stall with face painting and children's games, quiz night, meal and raffle. I also work as a waiter on a Saturday evening.
If you would like to make a donation I would be most grateful.
