    Weʼve raised £2,585 to Help Mauritian children with education and health needs

    Funded on Thursday, 30th November 2017

    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.


    Children in Mauritius often have to face important problems to get a good education opening doors for them in life and to enjoy sufficient healthy conditions to progress in anything they undertake. Our project is geared, on the one hand, towards children that have dropped off the formal system and are in need of basic knowledge and, on the other hand, towards others who need specific help because they suffer from diabetes of type 1(not producing any insulin naturally) and must from early ages learn to manage their insulin intake at all times.
    Two local associations taking care of children with such crucial needs are the ones my wife Dalida and me chose to help through our charity walk, namely: the Centre Etoile de Mer,a non-formal educational centre located in the north-east of Mauritius, and T1diams which caters on a national basis for diabetics of Type 1.
    To raise funds for these two beneficiaries and all those children depending on the capacity of these associations, the enterprise will be walking for 70 days on a distance of more or less 2000 km on the St James trail in Spain, starting in Segovia, 80 km from Madrid, on the 20th of June 2017, reaching Santiago de Compostela by the 25th of July, starting on the way back towards St Jean-Pied-de-Port in France to be reached on the 3rd of September 2017.
