Weʼre raising £2,000 to Ella’s South Africa English Teaching Volunteer Programme
- Bishop's Stortford, UK
- 4 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.
I am currently a student in my final year of sixth form at The Bishops Stortford High School. After my A levels, I am planning to take a gap year! As part of this gap year, I will be travelling to South Africa to volunteer as a teacher for children aged 8-14 for 5 weeks. I will be travelling with an organisation called Camp South Africa, supporting a charity ‘Through Sport United’, dedicated to helping community based development in underprivileged areas.
I will be mostly teaching English, with the opportunity to do some sports coaching too, in two different schools throughout the 5 weeks. The work volunteers carry out in underprivileged areas such as this are essential for children to gain an education, because levels of education do not stay within strict guidelines in South Africa. Some children will need help because they are falling behind, whilst others need some extra tuition because they are ahead in their classes which is encouraged by the charity.
All donations will help me help others! The donations will go towards the cost of the programme and the charity, which is a total cost of £1,019. Any other donations will then help towards me getting there – flights, vaccinations / medical forms and insurance.
The difference you make to people's lives during Camp South Africa will leave a lasting impression on you and everyone you spend time with.
Every donation will be very very much appreciated, however little or large! My target has to be hit by August 4th, 8 weeks before I leave! Any future fundraising events before this date will be posted on my Facebook page.
Any questions please get in touch, and thank you again for all your help!
Below are a couple of videos that bring my words to life in showing just how much Camp South Africa does!
many teachers find they create stronger bonds with the children and this is definitely shown in the amount of letters and cards they leave with.
