Weʼre raising £200 to Go to the children of Eswantini (Swaziland) at Shewula
- Shewula, Swaziland
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.
Shewula is an impoverished rural region in Eastern Swaziland, close to the Mozambique border. The country of Swaziland and the region of Shewula have been massively impacted by HIV and AIDs. With an estimated 1 in 3 adults having the disease and life expectancy standing at a lowly 48 years as a result, the impacts are huge. Not least on the most vulnerable in society; the communities’ children.
Truro and Penwith Colleges’ Geography department (and now Callywiths) and the IB programme have been supporting the children and community of Shewula since 2001, with the main aim being the enablement of AIDs orphans and other vulnerable children in Shewula to access education.
On the 23rd of June 2018 myself and 19 other students will be on the first trip over to Swaziland. While in Swaziland we will be visiting the children and giving them toys and clothes. All the money raised will go directly to the children for their schooling, books, uniform and transport costs. The money raised will not be funding my trip.
Thank you for taking your time to read this any donations are hugely appreciated and will be life changing to these children! Even the smallest of donations will help them very much. If you have any childrens clothes, small toys and stationary that is no longer needed please contact me as I will be able go take it over in my suitcase.
