Weʼre raising £2,500 to help fund my trip to Fiji. I am going to Fiji in June for a month with Think Pacific to help educate Fijian children.
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 am going to Fiji to educate children who have fallen behind in schooling, especially in rural Fiji where 75% of children live below the poverty line. Due to this and the lack of trained teachers within the villages, children who fall behind in class have no chance to catch up and are ultimately left behind. And this is why I am going to Fiji on June 4th for 1 month with Think Pacific. To help alongside the Fijian government in the early years education programme (EYEP). I will be teaching basic English language and mathematics but I will also be teaching oral health and basic hygiene. I will also be doing interactive activities such as music and painting.
Starting in 2009 Think Pacific have been working with the Fijian government to help improve the livelihoods of those in poverty. They have improved literacy by 40% since 2016, have supported over 10,000 children and have increased school attendance by 15%. If you want to find out more about the work that I will be doing with this charity please see this link: https://thinkpacific.com/our-impact/
£1100 of the money I hope to raise goes directly towards Think Pacific ( https://thinkpacific.com/dates-and-costs/costs-breakdown/ ) and the rest will go towards flights ( around £800), visa (around £70) and vaccinations.
All donations are greatly appreciated and I cant wait to change the lives of the people that need it.
NB: Any extra money will be donated directly to Think Pacific
