Weʼre raising £400 to pay for teachers wages, and improve facilities at Abuko Lower Basic School and Nursery in The Gambia.
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.
In January 2020, I am going to Abuko Lower Basic School and Nursery which is a small school in The Gambia with other Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College students. Whilst there, we will teach lessons to the students and help to improve their education by giving them new experiences.
Any donations will help with paying teachers wages, which are around £360 per year as well as purchasing school equipment for the children. As a group , we are also raising money to improve local facilities which will greatly increase the quality of life for the students. This has included building a bore hole in order to give the students running water in the past and this time will will look to improve sanitation at the school, and improve both the students quality of life and education .
In order to raise money, I will be conducting a sponsored row later this year on 10th September 2019 at Stoke-On-Trent Sixth Form College. I will complete the row with a friend in which we will both complete a full marathon on a rowing machine which is 26.2 miles or 42,195 meters each.
Thank you to everyone who donates!
