My name is Ben Jensen and I am raising money for my World Challenge trip to Malaysia & Borneo in July 2020!
World Challenge is an organisation that gives young people the opportunity to travel to developing countries, explore the cultures and customs, take part in a challenging trek and gain global citizenship skills by supporting local community-based projects.
A big part of the trip is working with locals on a community improvement project of their choice. It may involve improving their sanitation, water supply, housing or education. They decide. Our team will live in their village during our stay.
World Challenge is a voluntary trip to help those less fortunate. The trip isn't just about helping others it is also about leadership, teamwork, fitness, fundraising and organisation. For me it will be a trip of a lifetime straight after taking my GCSEs.
In order to participate in the trip I personally have to fundraise a minimum of £2500 to cover the cost of flights, accommodation, equipment, insurance etc. I will be running a programme of events, dog walking, having bake sales, car-washing, taking on challenges and I hope to find a part-time job. I will also be asking for donations instead of receiving birthday and Christmas gifts for the next 18 months.
I will keep you up to date with my fundraising activities over the next 18 months and send you a report on my trip and the community project we undertake on my return, so that you can see how your support has made a difference.
Please donate and help me raise enough to go and for those who need it.
Thank you so much, Ben.
