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.
During July 2017 I will be participating on a volunteering trip to Kenya for 17 days, helping out at two different Early Childhood Development day centres built for around 400 orphans and vulnerable children living in poverty. The staff at the centres provide food, education, medical care and clothing for all of the supported children, allowing them to become educated and provide a positive contribution back to the Kenyan society when in adulthood.
Both day centres (Noah's ark and St. Irene's) are situated in Mused in far western Kenya.
The NASIO Trust have a plan that by the year 2020, the centres will be completely self sustainable ensuring that the charity will not rely on donations and that the safety and security of the children is guaranteed for years to come - how many charities are that forward thinking?
Throughout my working visit, I will be helping improve and maintain both centres and supporting the schools to become self sustainable. I don't expect to be sitting around as I will be helping with community work (Teaching, feeding and entertaining the children), farming, and refurbishing the schools.
Your money will help me:
- travel to Kenya: this will include the bus journeys, flights and any other costs for the travel.
- accommodation: some of the money raise, will be paid directly to NASIO Trust, this will cover all accommodation aspects including food and running costs of the guest house.
- visa and vaccines: to visit and work in Kenya I will need to purchase a Kenyan visa, and the medical vaccines to stay healthy during my stay (I must admit, I'm not looking forward to the multiple injections and to take malaria tablets - these alone will cost around around £70)
Please not that NONE of this money will be donated or given to Nasio Trust your donation will pay for all my expenses so that I can work with NASIO Trust in Kenya.
Thank you for your generosity, and feel free to contact me to chat more about my venture,
