£225raised of £1,800 target by 7 supporters

    Weʼve raised £225 to help fund a volunteering project in East Africa.

    Bolton, United Kingdom
    Funded on Tuesday, 26th December 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    Myself and 11 other students are travelling to Tanzania during the summer of 2018 to complete a volunteering project. Over a 4 week period we will be teaching maths, english and science at primary and secondary schools, helping at medical centers and completing a practical project which in previous years has involved refurbishing an orphanage.

    The East Africa project is a project which is very close to my heart and offers a unique opportunity to make a profound difference in a deprived environment. So far the project has helped hundreds of people in so many different ways and I cannot wait to add to this!

    Each student has an individual fundraising target of £1800. Over the course of the next 12 months I will be completing a series of fundraising events and activities in order to raise the required sum. This will include sponsored activities and public events. I will be posting information concerning these events on this page and keeping you informed in the run up to and during the project. All donations made no matter how big or small are greatly appreciated.

    Thankyou so much for your support!

    Ellie :)
