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.
Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world and I will be working as a team on an important poverty reduction programme, arranged by Global Action and Lions Club International. The group will also be working with international charities such as: The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development, and the Gurkha Welfare Scheme.
The expedition will provide me with leadership and teamwork skills, while directly contributing towards international conservation and poverty reduction priorities. In addition, it will also provide me with the ASDAN Universities award, which will assist me to get into University.
I have to fundraise to cover the costs of my trip. In addition to raising the necessary money this exercise will improve my self-confidence and esteem, and develop my entrepreneurial and people skills. So far I have raised almost £200 (towards my total of £3200) through car washing, fence painting and lawn mowing and have plans to host coffee mornings, bake sales and raffles amongst other activities.
All donations would be very welcome to allow me to help a very worthy cause.
