    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

    Story

    Clothe The Naked Outreach (CTN) provide educational opportunities for orphans, abandoned kids, and poor children in the rural areas of Ghana. They run ScholarshCTN and help orphaned children with their Scholarship Beneficiaries in schools.

    There's a young orphaned boy called Greatlove who they help. I saw a Facebook post about Greatlove and his love of cameras.

    CTN have feedback that Greatlove is so intelligent, and he wants to become a pilot in future. £300 will pay for his education for 1.5years!

    He loves cameras and stands for hours during events with his toy camera.

    Hopefully Greatlove might share some photos with us after he's tested out his camera.

    We'd love to surprise Greatlove by getting him a real camera for Christmas! Any leftover money can go into a pot to help keep him in school. £300 can pay for 1.5 years of education for him, to help him reach his dream of becoming a pilot!

    We'll also get the other children some pastries and fruit juice, so they have something too.

      Greatlove got his camera on Sunday, and the other children had pastries and drinks. His school fees for the year (£250 or so) have also been paid! Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to make this happen. Same time next year? :)
