Weʼre raising £604 to help Amani take part in the Outward Bound Skills for Life Award course.
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.
My name is Amani and I'm a hard working 16-year-old girl. I am hoping to attend the Skills for Life Award course that is organised and run by The Outward Bound Trust. They are an educational charity that use the outdoors to help develop people from all walks of life. The ninteen day course will take place during the month of July in Loch Eil, Scottish Highlands.
Participants with the help of an instructor will plan three expeditions, including which mountains to conquer, what route to take and where to pitch our camps.
For the days we're not hiking, we'll have the opportunity to try more technical activities. Like rock climbing, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, gorge scrambling, caving, raft building and high ropes.
By taking part, I hope to become more independent, confident and resilient. I will also develop many valuable life skills whilst acquiring an awareness and concern for the natural environment.
The cost of the course is £1699. I have managed to take care of £1095, leaving me to pay a total of £604. Hopefully, with your help, I will be able to raise enough money so that I can take part in this course .
Please, please donate as much money as you can and thank you for taking the time to read my story.
