Weʼve raised £445 to volunteer in Borneo for 4 weeks
- Funded on Saturday, 6th April 2019
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.
I have been given an amazing oppourtunity to travel to Borneo with Camps International in the summer of 2020 after my GCSEs, to help the communities and also have the chance to scuba dive! During my trip we will be visiting 3 different locations:
Firstly, we will be helping to further develop the community amenities in Mantanani, which remains one of the poorest in the region. Here we will be digging foundations and laying bricks, painting and decorating, making furniture and installing bathroom facilities.
Our next project will include helping to safeguard Borneo’s wildlife which includes Orangutans, Elephants and Proboscis Monkeys in their natural habitats in Batu Puteh by collecting seeds, tree planting and monitoring wildlife along the Kinbatangan River.
Finally, we will be helping to further develop a purpose built kindergarden in Bongkud which provides a stimulating and safe environment for young children to learn and play. I will turn my hand again to digging foundations and laying bricks, painting and decorating, making furniture, creating play areas and landscaping, as well as installing water storage tanks and piping.
I would really appreciate any donation, no matter how big or small understanding that money can be tight for everyone. This expedition will take me far out my comfort zone and build my confidence, but I am determined to take on this challenge by working hard and returning home with a lifetime of memories
Thank You everyone for helping towards my goal,
