Weʼre raising £8,650 to Help fund a years worth of volunteer work abroad in Frontline Church Oklahoma City
- Liverpool, UK
- 25 days to go
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.
I am an 18 year old who loves God and his church and am really excited about taking a year out before studying at the University of Leicester, to travel to America and take part in a internship programme in Frontline Church in Oklahoma City.
I am really looking forward to being able support a local church, grow in my faith, develop my leadership abilities, be mentored in my faith and experience American culture first-hand.
However, as I am only 18, the only visa I qualify for is a multiple entry volunteer visa. This means I cannot be paid the traditional way frontline internships are paid, through support-raise, as it is too much like a paid job. It also means that I will have to fly to and from the country a couple of times, as I cannot be in the country for more than six months at one time. Moreover, as the visa is a volunteer visa, I will unfortunately not be able to work a par time job to compensate for flight and living costs.
Any money raised will go towards funding flights, living expenses and medical bills.
