    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.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.



    My name is Karyn, I'm 21 years old and I have a passion for Latin America.

    In January 2018 I will be returning to Chile for 8 months to volunteer alongside local churches, get involved with youth work, teach english classes and most importantly, share the Love of Jesus with lost communities.

    I will be going with an organisation called Latin Link, a Christian Mission agency who have a heart for taking the Gospel to local communities throughout Latin America.

    Last year I spent 2 months with a Latin Link team in Chile and Costa Rica. Whilst there I became involved with leading a children's holiday club, helping out with various maintenance projects and building life long relationships with people I met along the way. It was one of the most humbling journey's I have ever been on and I am so looking forward to once again stepping out in faith and trusting that God will use me to impact the lives of others in Chile.

    From the food to the culture, to the wonderful hospitality shown by the locals, over time I have developed a love for Latin America and believe that God has called me to serve Him there.

    I have a particular desire to work with children and young people in impoverished communities through the use of drama and english classes. Therefore, I aim to take out various schooling materials, english language guides, stationary etc. and other tools to aid this project.

    However, I cannot do it alone and that's where I need your help. With your support and prayers, together we can begin to make a difference in the lives of others in Chile. Whether it be a whole community or even just one person, investing time and love into someone's life when they need it most is an invaluable opportunity.

    I am so grateful to you for your contribution and I look forward to keeping you updated with exciting news!

    "This is my command; Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

      Hey Guys! Just a short update as to what has been happening! Thank you so much for donating towards my Stride to Chile, whether through Just Giving or other means. I am so grateful for your support! Not long to go now....I have a date of January 15th to work towards and have recently found out that my placement will be divided between a nursery, a short stay home for children with family problems, and possibly (not yet confirmed) a girls home! I am so excited to start this journey and just want to be there now! Thank you again, KP xx
