Weʼre raising £500 to support me in going with the East Renfewshire group of pupils going out to Malawi in October 2018 to work with the Betty Cunningham Trust
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.
Malawi is now the poorest country in the world. The Barrhead Councillor Betty Cunningham has been working out in Malawi since 2007 helping in particular the young children. Over the last few years a team of pupils from East Renfrewshire schools has been going to help her working at Dambo School in the village district of Kaponda.
I am privileged to have been selected as one of the St Ninian's pupils in this year's group. 24 pupils from the East Ren secondary schools will travel to Malawi in October. We will spend our time working in the school, painting and working with the children.
Before that I require to raise £2500 to help fund my travel and stay as well as providing for the work we will do out there. I plan to organise and take part in a number of activities to help raise the funds but if you would like to help me directly I would be more than grateful for any donations to this just giving page.
I am really excited and looking forward to being part of this project. I know it will be both challenging and rewarding. We hope that the young people of Malawi will benefit from our work there but I know that I will also benefit myself from the experience of raising funds before I go as well as seeing a third world country first hand for myself when I am there.
