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.
Alhaji fell out of a mango tree when he was six. The injury was so severe it necessitated the amputation of his right arm. This hasn't stopped him achieving fantastic things in life, including playing for his local amputee football team as their best goalie. But in Sierra Leone, one of the world's poorest countries, people with disabilities face numerous social stigmas, rendering most of them "unemployable".
Help Alhaji by contributing towards a small fund which will let him start his own business kiosk selling SIM cards and SIM card top-ups in Makeni, his hometown. With your support, he will be able to take the next step in his life!
