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.
I have been fundraising for schools, nurseries and orphanages in Africa for nine years, In that time I have provided essential educational materials, sports equipment, indoor and outdoor play equipment, furniture (tables, desks and chairs) and the construction of a football ground for a school and local community. Chueu Primary School is located close to Acornhoek, one of the most impoverished areas in South Africa. There is a high percentage of unemployment, single parent families, low income families and orphans that live in the area. Chueu Primary School is looking to stock their mostly empty shelves with books and create a Resource Centre that will provide the students an opportunity to expand and enhance their learning experience and allow them to link to other schools worldwide.
The Principal of Chueu Primary School, Thabelo Lumadi is the most dedicated, determined and hardworking person I have ever met. He is an outward thinking Principal and his successful initiatives and motivation continues to encourage and support his students to achieve their goals and ambitions. Chueu Primary is now successfully linked with a school in the Cumbernauld area in Scotland allowing students from both countries to explore and expand their knowledge.
I would be grateful if you could please help support this worthy cause and give the students of Chueu Primary School an opportunity to achieve their ambitions for a brighter future and break the circle of poverty. My target is to raise £500 which will go a long way to to fill their empty bookshelves and provide laptops to expand their knowledge by connecting to other schools throughout the world.
