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.
This amazing charity has been set up to support, children, families and communities in Malawi, helping to lift people out of poverty through self sustaining programmes.
Some of our work entails, teaching how to plant, harvest and store plants on the 37 acre farm. The food produced on our farm feeds the 34 children in the orphanage which we support through providing clean water, solar panels and painting the building inside and out.
We also bought an ambulance that provides a community service to locals in rural areas as well as the children in the orphanage.
We also provide funding for interest free loans to persons to help set up businesses. This to date has included pig farming and baking bread, as well as setting up a shop.
To date we have funded 300 loans, only 1 person has failed to repay. All money is then put back into the system to fund further initiatives.
We also use some of our money raised, to support children with attendance at school. This includes school activities, fees, bags and shoes.
This year we plan to take the children from the orphanage on a short holiday. This will allow them to experience a number of things for the first time in their lives.
