£150raised of £1,000 target by 9 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,000 to Allow Ben the opportunity to travel to Ecuador in 2020 to work on various projects to improve the lifestyles of the local communities.

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.


Hi, my name is Ben and I'm fourteen years old. I have been given a fantastic opportunity to travel to Ecuador in the summer of 2020 with Camps International. This opportunity will allow me to volunteer in underprivileged rural communities to raise standards in three main areas:

Raising Educational Standards

Raising Living Standards

Assist with ongoing wildlife conservation to preserve biodiversity & protect vulnerable habitats

I will be able to experience first hand the different and challenging environment locals have to deal with on a daily basis. I will be 'getting stuck in' to manual work and helping the children with English. As well as improving the quality of life for these communities I will also get an opportunity to complete my PADI open water dive course.

In order for me to take part in such a fabulous opportunity I am having to fundraise towards the cost of the trip which is just over £4000.00. I will be doing several local fundraising events also. I would be really grateful if anyone would be so kind to donate to my fund and help me on my 'trip of a lifetime'.

    UPDATE: Just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has donated so far. It's easy & safe to donate and you can donate from £5 upwards. I am in the middle of promoting a 100 square Prize Christmas Hamper so if you fancy a chance to win, let me have your £1's , choose a number and I'll pop your name again it. Hurry though squares are going fast! After the 100 square fund raiser I think I will organise a cake stall.... (Best get mum on the case with that one) Once again thanks I really appreciate every donation I get. Thanks Ben
