Weʼre raising £500 to fund out expedition to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands in 2020

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 July 2019 a group from Forest School, will be flying off to Ecuador and the Galapagos, in a once in a lifetime opportunity to see a world completely different from our own. But we need your help!
As part of the expedition,we will be helping a local tribe in the Amazon Basin. Currently, much of the local community's usual income is derived from harvesting wood from the surrounding environment, which is not sustainable in the future. However, we will be joining in a project for sustainable income through the development and construction of "Eco-Hotels" in which the local tribe exhibit their culture and heritage to tourists. This will create a new source of income, and preserve a unique culture in a world where there is increasing pressure to destroy the environment in order to thrive.
We will also be gaining valuable life skills whilst travelling in Ecuador, such as leadership - each day a new person will take charge of the group in the trek, - perseverance - we will have to overcome many challenges and difficulties - and social skills - we will need to work efficiently with local tribes and members of our own team, to ensure that our project is successful - .
Finally, we will be visiting the world renowned Galapagos islands; a stunning display of fantastical creatures, and a chance to see one of the few locations in the world untouched by humans.
We hope that you will donate to the trip ...

Thank you to everyone who supported us by coming to the Chinese night, and also to those who could not make it, but still decided to donate. The event was a great success; everyone really enjoyed the night, and had a great time. And it wasn't just the food. There was a great atmosphere, and an impressive spontaneous performance on the guitar from Joe. Once again, thank you for the support, and be sure to watch the page, as we will be keeping you updated on any future events...
