Weʼre raising £1,500 to support a widow and her six children in Tanzania. They hope to open a shop to help pay for school fees and medical fees.
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.
Recently our dear friend Magesa died suddenly. He was a faithful man and his wish was that his family would be able to carry on without him in a remote part of West Tanzania. His widow Rachel and her six children need to find a way to fund school fees and medical costs. We hope to enable them to set up a small business in order to generate some income.
They are exploring the idea of setting up a hardware shop which would actually help to bring supplies to an area of Tanzania in desperate need of tools and related supplies. This could have a longer term effect of enabling others around to raise their own standard of living so it may be positive on many fronts.
Opening a shop means that the older children will have the means to earn a living and the younger ones can grow up in a more secure environment. We appreciate your help. All money donated will be passed directly to this family.

Actually, there's an offline gift of £500 and we've designated the same so we're much closer to the target than it looks! The family are so grateful for the support and we have been in contact with a fantastic business mentor who is going to help them too. Any gift you give will make such a difference to this family.
