Weʼre raising £1,000 to help me travel to Thailand, where I will be volunteering in an Elephant sanctuary for a week as part of a school experience.

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 charity.

Story

Woodham Academy's Thailand experience is a new initiative, that allows KS4 students to travel across the world into a completely different way of life. We will be visit the North of Thailand and explore Bangkok and Chiang Mai, along with other destinations.

An integral part of the experience is a full week volunteering in an Elephant sanctuary, where we will learn to care for the animals. This includes feeding, walking and bathing them.

This is important as in Thailand there are many of elephants which are cruely treated on a daily basis, this includes the removal of tusks of injured elephants which may have been shot or stabbed in order to cut the tusks. Before this was brought to my attention i didn‘t realise how big of an issue this is. For example i did not realise elephants hate getting rode and can casue them serious pain as a long term effect. However knowing what i now know i am extremely greatful to be given the opportunity to be able to give something back and help the elephants.

Students end the experience visiting various historical sites including the Bridge over the River Kwai.

14 students have been selected following a highly competitive application and interview process in which I was successful in.

All of the students are required to raise money for the trip as part of a fundraising scheme. Any donations towards the experience will be greatly appreciated.
