£2,070raised of £1,000 target by 53 supporters

    Weʼve raised £2,070 to start a music programme for children in Lake Malawi, Africa.

    Doha, Qatar
    Funded on Saturday, 25th August 2018

    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.


    In July I will be going to Malawi in Africa, with an organisation called Africa Impact. The project I will be working on is based on education and community support. As a musician & teacher for the last 13 years, I have offered to start a music programme with the children and it is my intention to take resources and instruments with me. I would like to buy recorders, percussion instruments, ukuleles and maybe even a keyboard or guitars. I also want to take stationary, music and other such items, that can be purchased both beforehand and whilst in Malawi itself. I hope to create a programme that can be revisited and perhaps even take my own students in years to come. If you are able to donate to this in any measure, in order to help me get the music programme going, then you will be directly impacting the lives of children in Malawi, who are affiliated to the project and the school, not to mention co-collaborating on the growth of something special, which will reinforce the importance of Arts education and the impact it can have on young lives.

    Thank you very much for your support! I will document where your pennies go and send updates on the results!

      Dear Sponsors, I’m still editing the 🎥 from 🇲🇼 and it’ll be with you all soon. I want to send 📚 of all kinds from my school, but the cost of shipment is high. If any locally-based Qatari sponsors could be up for this, or internationally, please drop me a line and point me in the right direction? I’ve just had a conversation with one of the local teachers and they are desperate for the books - we have them - we just need to get them there, so any sponsors would be wonderful. As always, Big love x

      Dear Sponsor, I am in the process of making a short film about the project and haven’t shared many images yet, from the programme itself, as a more comprehensive short-film is on its way to you, as a thank you for your generosity. Costing Breakdown: of the funds raised, £526 remained. This is being used to purchase a mini studio for the project, so that the older students can learn sound production, in order to record their work. We found a local music producer to carry on! (FYI no funds used for my own travel costs) Thanks again Steph.x
