Weʼve raised £299 to Ella's community construction project in Antigua Guatemala.
- Funded on Friday, 26th October 2018
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.
On July 7th 2018, I will be heading out to Antigua Guatemala, volunteering on a local community construction and renovation project.
Guatemala is, despite its growing economy, a country with one of the highest rates of inequality in Latin America. Half the population live in poverty, and it is impossible to think that this is not in part a direct cause of the poor access to adequate infrastructure.
On top of this, Guatemala's location comes with its own struggles. The mountainous volcanoes create a beautiful backdrop for the Mayan villages, but as seen at the beginning of June with the eruption of Fuego, they equally cause great destruction and devastation to many. It was this which has inspired me to help out. I feel a burning inside me to use my passion for architecture to physically and virtually 'build' for a humanitarian cause.
International volunteering unfortuantely comes with its own financial costs, which is what has lead me to set up this sponsorship page, I would be incredibly grateful for any amount you can give to support me in supporting others! Love and light, Ella
