Weʼre raising £4,240 to get me to Ecuador with Camps International for a 4 week expedition, where I will be working on community & environmental projects.
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.
Hi, I have signed up with Camps International to go on a four week expedition in Ecuador to help with their community and environmental projcets.
In Ecuador, 50% of rural areas are below the poverty line and only 30% of children receive an education. Lack of education together with poor growing conditions has resulted in large cases of chronic malnutrition in the highlands. On a huge scale, deforestation iin the amazon rainforest is contributing to global warming.
Through my expedition, I will be supporting the work of Camps International in the local community. The types of things I will be involved with will include:
- planting and nursing trees in the amazon rainforest which will bring income to the locals that need it from the selling of saplings.
- building seed and vegtable greenhouses that will help children learn about nutrition.
- build kitches and dinning rooms in schools
- build toilets in local homes to improve health and hygenic problems.
I really appreciate your support. Thanks, Alfie
