Weʼre raising £2,000 to help support schools in Rwanda

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.


In November I shall be travelling to the south west of Rwanda for a month in order to volunteer in a number of schools. These schools are supported by an organisation called Hands Around the World, a charity for vulnerable children:

Obviously, this is terribly exciting for me - my first trip to Africa. But I'm also hoping to Add Value, as the management speak in my office goes. This means that as well as painting school walls/maybe do a bit of teaching/definitely do a lot of playing, we need to be spending money locally and supporting local businesses, for example, by purchasing school books, desks, sports equipment etc in the local area. Rwandans are keen further to develop their own economy and HATW is doing all it can to support this.

We are planning a construction project, building classrooms so that more children can access secondary education. Volunteers will be involved in helping to renovate classrooms, mainly through painting, working alongside local people - and teaching English.

Whilst I am funding my own trip and expenses, I would love it if my family and friends (family, by another name, bless you all) would also like to join in supporting this fabulous endeavour. The extra money we raise through fundraising will be matched by Jersey Overseas Aid and will contribute to buying painting materials as well as new doors, and window frames.

At the moment, I've not a clue what I will do to deserve this fund-raising effort. Maybe buy you coffee? Or it may simply be running a couple of 10ks, although I do quietly have the crazy idea of running 6 parkruns around the country to spell R-W-A-N-D-A, if I can logistically pull it off. Who knows?

Anyway, you know what to do....
