Weʼre raising £1,800 to fund World Challenge Trip Madagascar incl building schools in a rural mountain village
- Hammersmith, London
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.
Just a few months ago I join the World Challenge 2020 Expedition. We will be travelling to Madagascar for a month.
The trip is entirely planned by us students, and we will be volunteering in a mountain community- building schools and helping out in a remote village similar to this one below:
Of Madagascar's 25 million population, 90% live on less than $2 a day, and Madagascar is one of the poorest countries in Africa. One of the biggest problems within the country is the poor education system. Whilst there we also hope to experience some of Madagascar's incredible wildlife, almost all of which is unique to this island.
In order to be able to help others, I first need to raise a considerable sum- £4560 to cover the cost of my trip and enable me to embark on this fantastic mission. I am raising the entirety of the cost of the trip myself (mostly put on hold until post-GCSEs) through tennis coaching, bake sales, car washes, and other events.
On the 9th of February 2019 Omar (like me also a World-Challenger) and I are doing a 100km sponsored indoor row. This will take between 8 and 9 hours, and your sponsorship would be fantastic.
I need your help to ensure I am able to take this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and can embark on this trip, helping those who can't begin to imagine the style of lives we lead.
The below video provides a little more information about World Challenge as a whole.
