Weʼve raised £0 to help fund a Girlguiding service project in Taiwan
- Closed on Wednesday, 22nd November 2017
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.
I have been selected to represent Girlguiding Warwickshire and take part in an International opportunity to Taiwan in 2018. This is an amazing opportunity for me as a member of the largest organisation for girls and young women in the UK and as a member of WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts) which is a worldwide movement of 10 million girls, young women and adult leaders in 145 countries.
The group is made up of 20 girls and we will be visiting Hou-li and Taipei where we will meet Girlguiding members from around the World. The main focus of the trip is to undertake a service project focused on improving the agricultural facilities in Hou-li, Taichung city and taking part in intercultural exchange with the local students the work will benefit. I will be working on the project for 4-6 hours a day outdoors in an urban setting.
All participants will be involved in planning and preparing for the trip with the support of the leaders. I am very excited to have this opportunity as it will give me the chance to experience different cultures, develop my skills, meet new people and help those who aren’t as fortunate as myself. It will also be an opportunity for me to develop many life and personal skills, to share my experiences and skills with others and to make international friends.
All team members are required to fundraise the £2,500 per person cost. I am planning a number of fundraising activities including stalls at fairs, a quiz night, a non school uniform day, a raffle and a party bag business.
Any donations towards the project will be greatly appreciated and used to help the Taiwanese people I will have contact with during the trip.
