Weʼre raising £2,000 to help fund for my humanitarian mission to Kenya!!

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 October 2017 I embarked on a humanitarian mission to Kenya, Africa with the charity African Adventures. During my visit, I worked in a school, helping teach English and many other skills to the children ranging in age from 3-13. As well as helping with renovations such as painting classrooms and building an assembly hall; working to improve everyday life for the amazing children and teachers. Not to mention helping prepare food for nearly 200 children; being able to witness and value their amazing smiles, happiness and excitement each day was incredible!
...and this year I am going back!!
For the trip, I took many donations of clothes, books, pencils, toys etc to donate to the amazing children there. As well as the families I met who lived and survived on the rubbish dump. Every individual I met on this trip was inspiring and made me so much wiser in a unique way. This trip confirmed my passion and in fact doing this as career is something I cannot wait for! So please help enable me to go back and continue to make a change.
