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.

Story

I will be travelling to Peru in summer 2019 with Camps International to do voluntary work to help improve the lives of the local community. In Peru, there is a disparity between wealth and poverty, with 54% of rural communities living below the poverty line. There is also a lack of education and poor growing conditions for vegetables resulting in severe malnutrition in the highlands. 18% are malnourished and 33% of under 15 year olds are employed rather than being at school.

During the expedition I will be helping with some of the ongoing projects run by Camps International which improve education, housing, healthcare, sanitation, food and water security and environmental protection. I will be involved in many activities including laying foundations, plastering, decorating buildings, mixing cement, paving and planting small food crops.

We are on our expedition for a month and work hard on community projects for 3 of these weeks. We are also given the opportunity to do a 5 day trek on the Salkantay Trail and visit the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu, one of the new seven wonders of the world.

The expedition costs over £4000, which goes towards both supplies for projects and the cost of travel for the volunteer. I have managed to raise a substantial amount of cost through pocket money/christmas presents and kind family and money gained through doing odd gardening jobs and car washing etc.

To raise further money I am doing a sponsored walk up Ben Nevis on Saturday 30th of June 2018 as practice for the trekking in 2019. Please sponsor me for doing the walk and help me make a difference in Peru.

THANK YOU! Every £1 helps.
