Weʼre raising £3,500 to fund a 4 week expedition to Kenya, there I will be involved in environmental conservation projects and low level construction work...
- Nairobi, 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 rural Kenya the majority of people live below the poverty line and access to clean water, proper sanitation, healthcare and education are limited or non-existent.
In August this year I will be embarking on a 4 week expedition to Kenya with my college through the organisation 'Camps international'. Our projects will be focused on soothing these present issues that many of the people and animals living in Kenya face.
The building project based at Camo Tsavo will involve construction work such as assembling school desks and actually creating a school building.
Similarly at Camp Muhaka I will be taught how to build houses, constructing water tanks and challenge the locals to a football match.
The final camp is predominantly environmentally focussed, I will carry out a beach clean ups and learn how to make key rings from washed up flip flops.
Whilst on expedition I will have the opportunity to complete a 5 day trek up Mount Kenya (Africa's 2nd highest mountain) up to Point Lenana. I will also have the chance to meet the world famous, tall, red-robed Maasai tribe who live around the Kenya – Tanzania border and the inspiring Mamas of the local villages who will teach us some of their traditional skills like chapatti making.
This once in a life time expedition will allow me to gain irreplaceable experiences like no other and help me to make a small change to those in suffering communities whilst being re-educated myself on different cultures, allowing me to adapt a new way of thinking .
In order to raise funds for the expedition I need to raise £4000 which covers flights, food, basic accommodation and transport between the camps. So far I have raised £500 from various cake sales and car boots, please help to reach my target of £3500 by donating.
Kind regards Ella Carolan :)
