Weʼre raising £1,440 to help to raise money for me to volunteer in Thailand support early childhood development and teach English to children in schools in Krabi.
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.
Growing up, I have had to combat some of the difficulties living with Aspergers Syndrome and if it wasn‘t for the support provided to me during the stages of my early childhood development, I wouldn‘t have been able to speak to people or be able to socially interact with people if it wasn‘t for the support groups and tools given to me in the UK with the help of my parents. That’s why it‘s so important to start children‘s development from the get go so they are more guaranteed successful and more fufilled lives as they grow up to become their own individuals. In some countries, these resources don‘t come as easy and need the help of volunteers to offer their own ideas and supporting the children with their development and understanding of English to build their future careers and prospects. Hopefully one day, every country will be fully backed up on making early childhood development a priority.
My goal with this go fund me page is so I have the opportunity to volunteer my skills in Thailand whist I have the chance during my gap year as I can’t afford to pay for the fees alone as I’ve had difficulties finding work at the beginning of my gap year due to finding a job which would suit my condition (which I’ve recently managed to find) and can only currently afford the flights and my visa.
I would love to make a difference to others in Thailand is because I would love to share my love to the wider world to children across the world to give others a new and fresh perpective on life. My passion is to help make a difference specifcally to young children who are at the stage of early childhood development because what they learn at this stage in their life they’ll take on with the rest of their life.
