Weʼre raising £1,400 to help Andrei help rural communities in Nicaragua empower themselves to escape poverty
- Managua, Nicaragua
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.
Rural communities all over the world want the power to lift themselves out of extreme poverty. This autumn, I will be travelling to Nicaragua in an attempt to empower these people, with the help of other fellow volunteers.
How will I do that?
As part of a Global Brigades - Business volunteering team, I will help locals without access to financial services better understand and run small businesses. I will provide guidance and counseling in how to create a long-term strategy. Along with the other Brigades (Medical, Engineering, Law, and Clean Water), we aim to address as many problems as possible during our 7-days stay and make a lasting impact on that community.
Why is this important?
Global Brigades is helping people help themselves. By securing immediate financial stability, disadvantaged families are able to plan for a better future in turn being more likely to send their kids to school and ensure a better life for them.
I strongly believe that your place of birth should not hinter your chances for a fulfilling life, so join me on this adventure and start changing the world now!
