    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    I met Raj during my stay in Bhaktapur, Nepal. He was a wide eyed inquisitive little boy who was desperate to go to school but was unable to due to financial problems in his home.

    His father had recently died and his mother could not afford to send him, as well as his three sisters, to receive a decent education. Every day Raj sobbed as he watched his sisters and his friends go off to school. I knew that I could help in some way.

    I've paid for Raj to get a good education in a private school for the next two years. Public schools do exist in Bhaktapur but unfortunately they are not only bursting at the seams with children, many are also rife with corruption.

    In four months, this little boy is excelling at school and shows me his school report with pride whenever I see him. I've been to see him in the classroom and have spoken to the headteacher who is overjoyed with his progress. Raj told me that he wants to do well so that he can support his mother when he grows up and help other kids like him to go to school in the future. Please help me, in anyway you can, to support him through his education. I can't do it alone.

        This donation is the money I have saved since I stopped self medicating with alcohol, and started self medicating with yoga :-) I am so happy to be able to give it to help Raj instead.

      For the last six years I've been working with local charities and NGOs to support disadvantaged young people in my area. This year, I ventured to Nepal to rebuild schools following the earthquake and decided to help people I met whilst on my journey who were in need of support.
