Weʼve raised £670 to help fund my trip to Nepal, the trip will involve helping a remote and vulnerable village community with installing safe drinking water
- Funded on Wednesday, 18th October 2017
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.
The trip is organised by Global Action in conjunction with my school.
We will be travelling to Nepal to complete the following activities:-
Visit the ancient city of Kathmandu - explore restored World Heritage palaces, visit monasteries to see how two world religions peacefully co-exist, learn from inspirational NGOs how Nepal is building resilient livelihoods.
With Practical Action Nepal and villagers, work on a well-planned and high-impact poverty-reduction programme in an isolated and vulnerable mountain community. Install safe drinking water systems, help build a critically-needed classroom or public health clinic.
Be inspired by how the tranquil Buddhist Kopan Monastery is preserving Tibetan cultural traditions in an era of rapid globalisation, and learn how monks and nuns live their lives.
To help with various fundraising activities, I will be undertaking the Coast to Coast (C2C) bike ride, this is a 140 mile cycle across the northern edge of the Lake District and Northern Pennines.
I will be undertaking this event with a school friend who is also coming on the trip to Nepal, and of course with the support of my family. Either helping with the planning and cycling or with driving the support vehicle and keeping us fed and watered.
We will be undertaking this trip over two days of cycling, the 5th & 6th August.
The ride is 140 miles and involves 12,000 feet of ascent, I am sure my legs will be aching by the end of this.
