    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

    Nearly 1/2 of the world’s population — more than 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty — less than $1.25 a day. 1 billion children worldwide are living in poverty. According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. (UN figures). 805 million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat.

    Some facts about world hunger and poverty

    Development can help reduce poverty, raise incomes and improve food security for 80% of the world's poor, who live in rural areas and work mainly in farming. 'Development' is complex and challenging and injustice is one of the biggest components of why poverty exists. To me development means helping people to live a fuller life; enjoying mutual freedoms on basic needs such as shelter, food nutrition, education, clothing and health. Using the insights gained from this university course plus my background in education and sustainable agriculture I will be able to influence others to empower marginalised people by working with development organisations that promote sustainable agriculture, food security, education, and livelihood programmes.

    Your support can be part of the story!
