Weʼre raising £1,000 to help fund Gairo B School in Tanzania, Africa.
- Birmingham, West Midlands, UK
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.
My wife works at a school which is linked to Gairo B and they provide porridge for the children at the school. This then allows then to have a meal - never previously done before. Because of this more children attend school and standards have increased.
Numbers attending school have more than doubled and the classrooms are very over crowded - sometimes with over 100 children in each room. resources are limited but the link we have is making a real difference. Gario B now have school values, sports days, praise assemblies and even a school improvement plan!
In July 2019 we are lucky enough to be visiting for the first time. All travel and expenses will be paid for by us but we want to fund raise so we can support them in expanding their school, providing food for the additional children and resources.
All money donated goes directly into a bank account which has 2 trustees in Gairo. Money is spent as a partnership and directly benefits the children who attend Gairo B.
Without this additional funding, children will remain in cramped classrooms - some sitting 5 to a desk while some sit on the floor. Their school improvement plan outlines reading in Standard 3 is a priority. When we go to Gairo B, it would be wonderful it we could take the resources to help them teach English and improve their chances of further education and work.
Thank you in anticipation of your support.
