    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.

    Story

    Ann, Janine and Jan visited the nursery and primary schools in the village of Andasibe, Madagascar. In public schools in Madagascar the government pay teachers' wages and nothing else. Consequently there are just desks in classrooms, and no resources, not even books. Even so, children walk for miles barefoot to get an education.

    While we were in Madagascar we worked in the rain-forest next to Andasibe. We saw, and heard, lots of animals, including indris and mouse lemurs. Indri, Madagascar's largest lemur, are rare. There are about 60 resident family groups here with two to five indris in each group. The Good-man's mouse lemur, the smallest primate in the world, was discovered here in 2005 and identified as a distinct species.

    Lemur like to eat particular trees. There is a need to pay villagers to collect seedlings of trees from the forest to plant in the tree nursery, and to plant saplings in spaces in the forest.

    To generate income from tourism, the rain-forest park, which is owned and run by the local community, need slabs of stone to build a 15 km path, and to pay villagers to lay the path. There are four organised walking trails in the park which give tourists the best chance of seeing lemur.

    The community voluntarily work on projects to improve life in their village, but they need funds to buy the resources for the projects.
