    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.


    In February 2019, Ben is travelling with five of his fellow pupils to a school in Bombo, Uganda, where he will help run lessons for a week, as well as meet the children we sponsor and their families. Ben sponsors a young boy called Daniel and Natasha sponsors an older girl called Mirembe. Neither of these children would have access to an education (and, in some cases, their only daily meal) without such sponsorship programmes run by CRMI Children of Hope. We pay for their education and will also be meeting the full travel costs of the visit next year. However, we learned from parents who went last year that there is so much more help that is needed - tales of as many as ten children sleeping on sacks on a concrete floor, in one room huts with no roofs.

    It is going to be very challenging to witness such poverty, and Ben is determined to fundraise ahead of his trip, in order to be able to make a significant difference whilst he is there. He would like to undertake sponsored challenges, perform odd jobs for donations and has also asked that anyone who considers buying him birthday presents kindly donate to this page instead. He would very much like to raise enough to buy one or two bunk beds for a family who might need it.

    If you are able to donate anything and support Ben in improving the lives of these children it really will make a direct, meaningful difference and be hugely appreciated. Thank you! x
