Weʼre raising £5,000 to help me be able to go on an expedition to Tanzania in summer 2018 and help build a school for the local children.

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
My name is Ellie and I'm 15 years old. I am trying to raise money to go on a volunteering expedition to Tanzania in summer 2018. The basis of this trip is to support the local community by building houses and schools as the children only get about 2 hours a week because of the distance their original school is away from their homes. We will also be doing environmental conservation such as showing the locals that elephants can get them money without the need to kill them e.g. elephant dung paper. The overall cost of the trip is about £5000 including vaccinations, visa and kit. So I am asking you to donate money so I can help people who are less fortunate than us have a better life because they deserve it as much as we do. I will then post pictures on Facebook so you can see what cause your money is going towards and how much it is helping those living in poverty in Tanzania. I would also appreciate it if you could share my campaign on Facebook as well and tell everyone about it because then I can get the money I need to help the less fortunate. I would really like if you could help me pay for the expedition as I think these children deserve as much of a chance to go to school as we so here in the UK.
