Story

I want to make this world a better, fairer place!

I have been selected to join a team of colleagues at Virgin Media to travel to Tanzania in January 2017 to support the Meserani Project. The project provides education for children in Tanzania from primary school, right through to University and vocational training. This gives them a chance to build better lives and ultimately to find employment.
I'm going to work on a variety of projects, from building rain water harvesting systems, to teaching IT skills. This will directly benefit the schools and pupils and for me to be able to give my support like this, in a face to face way is an honour and a privilege I don't take lightly. THIS IS NOT A JOLLY!
We live in a country of massive wealth and security. Our children receive the best in education, healthcare, opportunity, you name it, we have it.
I ask you to share some of your wealth with these people. Be part of their future. Make a difference to their lives.
100% of your donation will go to the project to fund the work. I'm paying for my own airfare. I promise you I will give my all to my 2 weeks in Tanzania to represent you and your generous gift and ensure that we make this corner of the world a better place.

Thanks

    Thanks to all who have donated. I'm closing the Crowdfunder on Friday but I can still take cash donations throughout December and January. Will also take any donations of School supplies, white shirts, shoes, scientific calculators and maths sets. 2nd hand are fine. Thanks again.

    Thanks Simon for the donation. With the BBQ and cake sale at work yesterday, and some other cash donations you've just taken me past the £1000 mark! Many thanks to you and all who have donated so far.
