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.

My name is Aryann Gupta, I am 13 years old, and I go to Abingdon School in the United Kingdom. I have always pondered upon the question as to why is there suffering on this planet. If we were all created equally and have equal rights like many religions promise and claim, why is there still suffering? Why do people have to worry about whether they will have food on their table every night? Why do people die because of “harmless” diseases that have long been cured in the “West”? It’s all based and centred around money. A piece of paper that has so much value in society and can buy you anything you desire. I think value should not be bought through this “paper”, but rather hard work, which Gabonese people have. Gabon is a country with 1 million hectares of arable land. But still, Gabon’s major imports are basic goods like Bananas, tomatoes and onions when Gabon is perfectly capable of growing these crops. The same applies to education. Education is fundamental in this new century. I believe that if we need to life a country out of poverty, we first must educate the people, as that is the key.
The healthcare system in the Republic of Gabon has its challenges. These include high rates of non-communicable diseases and a shortage of nurses and midwives.
Support the varying healthcare systems of Gabon.
Collaborate with the Ministry of Health and other health organisations, training institutions and registration bodies, to help attain the highest level of healthcare for the public.
Help to support the representation of patients in Gabon by working in collaboration with NGOs and healthcare associations.
Funds will be used for:
Implementation of our strategy, that focuses on vulnerable groups such as people with non-communicable diseases, children, older people and people with mental health problems.
Contributing to improving standards, so that people receive safer and more effective care.
Working in partnership with healthcare providers and being advocates to people who use healthcare services.

About the fundraiser
I am 13 years old and I think that we need to bring change to this broken-century that we live in. I believe that all people have the right to education as it is a necessity.
