Weʼre raising £4,000 to to build a hostel for children from the mountains of Nepal, to allow them to attend school.
- Leicester, UK
- 6 days to go
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.
In Nepal students often have to travel great distances every day to get to school and regularly struggle to get there when the weather is poor, sometimes being prevented completely from doing so by snowfall.
The hostel we are funding will remove this obstacle by allowing the students to live at the school.
This will improve their education levels, and provide access to schooling for students who didn’t previously have this due to the barrier of distance.
Throughout the year I'll be taking part in various challenges and events, with the aim of raising funds for this initiative.
Any donations to support, however great or small, will make a huge difference to this cause.
I really do appreciate any support that you can give.

About the fundraiser
This region has long been one of my most desired locations to visit, and to have the opportunity to do this, and to raise money to support the Computershare Change A Life initiative at the same time was a fantastic draw for myself.
