£830raised of £1,100 target by 32 supporters

    Weʼve raised £830 to help fund my volunteering project in Tanzania

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom
    Funded on Wednesday, 3rd October 2018

    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.


    I'm in my 3rd year studying for my midwifery degree at Edinburgh Napier University, as part of the course we have an elective placement of 4 weeks, we can choose to go anywhere and do anything (midwifery related!), with such an amazing opportunity I have chosen to use my time volunteering in Tanzania in February 2018, in less than 3 months eek!

    I will be working a minimum of 30 hours a week with midwives in Arusha, north Tanzania. There are high births rates, mortality, FGM and HIV, but few resources and midwives to care for the women and their families. I hope to take medical supplies to donate to the hospital with me. I also hope my training so far will enable me to help the women and the midwives, I will learn new skills and can pass on my skills. This will be an invaluable learning experience and help me develop my knowledge, skills, communication and compassion while providing much needed care to women in a developing country.

    I'm hoping to fundraise towards the cost, so any support would be amazing, I've signed myself up for a 10k run on the 3rd of December so please sponsor me to limp over the finish line!

    Please share my story

    Thank you xx
