Weʼve raised £572 to help fund Alyssa's trip to Tanzania to work with the charity, Grassroots.
- Mbeya, Tanzania
- Funded on Saturday, 3rd August 2019
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 July, I will be travelling to Mbeya in Tanzania with my school to work with the charity, Grassroots. I will be involved in feeding programmes, visiting schools and other activities with children over the course of ten days. Tanzania is one of the world's poorest nations and Grassroots aims to help children suffering with Malaria and AIDS. The charity provides support to children who are orphans or do not have a secure home, by ensuring they have access to education, food and clothing.
In preparation for the trip, I need to raise funds for my flights and accommodation. In addition to raising money from bake sales and school fairs, I am participating in a swimathon on 24 April, with a target of 100 lengths (one length representing 75 km of the total 7,500 km distance from the UK to Tanzania!). If you would like to sponsor me and support this cause, any contribution would be much appreciated. Here is a link to Grassroots' Website where you can find further information.
Thank you very much for your support.

I completed 100 lengths! It's a very blurry photo, but here's me half way through. Didn't feel too tired afterwards, probably helped by a sense of accomplishment! Thank you again for all your support! Alyssa
