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.


Hello everyone,

I am now currently a 3rd year optometry student and I am raising money to assist me in funding my trip to South Africa this summer (2018) where I will be volunteering on the Phelophepa health train, otherwise known as the 'Train of Hope.'

On the train I will be carrying out approximately 15 eye examinations a day, while also providing medical eyecare advice and dispensing glasses for two weeks - with the assistance of a fully qualified optometrist.

There are two trains, with each train consisting of 6 departments. A health clinic, a pharmacy clinic, an educational clinic, a dental clinic, a psychology clinic and the one I will be in the eye clinic.

The estimated cost of the project is around £1000 per student so any donations would be greatly appreciated. I am very excited to be apart of this project to help to improve peoples lives by helping their eyesight! More information can be found here or you can message me. .
