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 2015 the earthquakes in Nepal killed over 9,000 people and destroyed over 3,000,000 buildings. This October I am volunteering with Raleigh International for 10 weeks to travel to Nepal to bring aid to rural communities in the country.
Our volunteer work will include providing access to safe water and sanitation, education facilities and rebuilding homes. We will also work to create more resilient communities and raise awareness to issues such as gender inequality. My aim is to raise £3,450, which will cover the costs of materials, tools, food and accommodation for the Raleigh programme. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated, and I believe it is going towards a good cause :)
