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 nonprofit.

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


13 years ago, a group of us were lucky enough to volunteer as Primary School teachers in Malawi.

We had the time of our lives and gained a lot from the experience. We now want to raise money to give back to the community we learnt from.

Specifically, we want to raise money for Chimpeni Primary School, a school founded by one of our 'reps' (a lady who looked after us out there) Jane Thorneycroft. I was lucky enough to visit Chimpeni Primary in 2017.

It is an inspiring and aspiring school, but like so many in the area, has very limited resources. They desperately need to raise funds to rebuild their toilet block, which has been recently destroyed in a flood, and to build their much longed for library (and more importantly - fill it with books!)

I am now a (slightly more experienced!) Primary School Teacher (once again) and realise more than ever how impactful a good education and good resources are.

Please help support this cause if you can or spread the word if you can't.

Thank you!

      A great cause. I can’t wait to bring my own children to visit Malawi one day and hopefully see Chempeni school. Can’t believe it’s been 13 years...I owe some of my greatest friendships to Malawi. X

    Chimpeni Primary School in Zomba, Malawi was founded by The Thorneycrofts. It is an inspiring and aspiring school, but like so many in the area, has very limited resources. They need to raise money to build a library and rebuild their toilet block, recently destroyed in a flood.
