Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
On a recent solo trip to Gambia to visit my personally sponsored children in Gambia I visited the local school of my children. I had set out with the intention of locating an area to build a future Library. During my visit I was shocked to learn that some 3000 children had no access to functional toilet with them being in such bad condition.
There is no running water which means both no way to remove an waste and no way for children to sanitise. The sewrage pipes have rotted and collapsed. The holes in the ground are over flowing with human excrement and urine. The flies and smells is beyond words.
Children are now becoming very sick.
My mission is to raise as much money as possible to build the toilets for the children. I have builders that will donate their time to help build these facilities but I need all the help I can get in helping raise the money for the materials for this project. No donation is too small.
