    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    In the summer of 2018, I have the opportunity to travel with a charity called Camps International to Borneo, South East Asia, for 4 weeks to volunteer to help a variety of communities across the island in multiple ways. I will be doing things from digging foundations, laying bricks and installing bathroom facilities to planting trees and helping to monitor wildlife.

    Throughout the 4 weeks I will be living in the same conditions as the locals and working to help improve their quality of life, however, in order to be able to do this I must first raise the funds to get there. The £5,000 I require will be spent on a number of things, 1/3 of it will be invested in local economies, communities, wildlife & environmental conservation, another 1/3 spent on programme planning and the expedition delivery costs and the other 1/3 will be used to pay for support costs and other infrastructure development.

    This means a lot to me because living in a developed country disconnects us from our counterparts living in developing countries who are our equals, I was lucky enough to be able to born in the UK and so I would like to go and help reconnect with those who are not so fortunate and help improve their lives.

    I need your help to get me there, I understand if you cannot afford to donate a lot, but every penny counts, and if you are unable to donate at all, just by sharing this page with the your friends and family will make all the difference.

    Thank you for all your generosity, I hope together we manage to reach the goal. For more information feel free to visit the website http://campsinternational.com/product/camp-borneo-scuba-school-expedition/ or leave a message below for me and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
