Weʼre raising £3,600 to Sponsor an aid and teaching expedition to Cambodia in 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 charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Just under a decade ago, my school, The Royal Grammar School in Guildford, built 2 small schools in the rainforests of Cambodia to provide an education to hundreds of young girls and boys who would otherwise have no access to such services. We teach them subjects such as English, Maths and Science, as well as basic life skills they can apply to their everyday lives.
From then on, every 2 years, a small group of boys, ages 16 and 17, from my school travel to Cambodia in July to teach at these schools for 2 weeks and build on new buildings and providing fresh supplies. I will be taking part in the 2019 expedition.
This cause means a lot to me, since without expeditions such as these, all of these children would receive no education and would struggle to break free of living life in a small, rundown village. This expedition gives me a chance to change their lives for the better, and for the 2 weeks that I am there, bring some happiness to their lives.
In October this year, I am running a 10km rough runner race to raise money towards this cause. I need to raise £3600 by March next year for this expedition to pay for accomodation, food, building supplies and textbooks.Any donation, large or small, would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
