Weʼre raising £10,000 to Arran High School Tanzania Expedition
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.
On the 15th of June 2019 six students from Arran High School will undertake a life changing expedition as we team up with a group of young people from Perth Grammar School to work with the Vine Trust in Tanzania to help people in need.
The Vine Trust is a charity that specialises in changing lives across Africa and South America by working with local partners. In Tanzania they work with the Tanzania Women Research Foundation (TAWREF) to identify people, families and groups who need help, primarily with housing.
When we are in Tanzania we will form part of a team that will spend approximately 10 days building houses, visiting schools and orphanages and learning more about life in Tanzania and the challenges facing those who are in need of help. We will also have the opportunity to visit the fragile ecosystems present in the Tarangire National Park and the Ngorogoro crater.
The trip costs £2,800 per person and this pays for wages for the builders we will be working with, materials, equiptment, and our own flights and accomodation.
This is a truly life changing opportunity for the students undertaking it and those we will work with in Tanzania and any support is greatly appreciated.
