Hello, my name is Haroon Tahir and in May of 2017, I will embark on a expedition with a group from my school in which we will travel to the county of Cambodia to do charity work for a poor rural community. During this time, me and my group will stay at a Camps International colony and they are a reputable international charity and volunteer organisation. The charity work we will do will consist of building school, constructing clean water pumps and teaching Cambodian children. I will do this for a period of two weeks and this will be volunteer work. The £2000 will be spent on my visa, vaccines, plane ticket and equipment such as building materials for our charity work. I am doing this as I wish to help the poor communities in Cambodia who have suffered dearly since the reign of the communist leader, Pol Pot who killed 1 in 3 people in Cambodia during his reign. Doing this will allow Cambodians to have a better education and better essentials so they can live their life with more ease. I am not doing this for the benefit of myself as it will be hard and arduos work but rather for the benefit of the improverished Cambodian people.

On the Sunday the 13th of November, I did my first ever sponsored for my Cambodia cause at the MoRun. It was a 5k run and I came 28th place and my time for it was 26 minutes. The amount of money that I raised using the method of sponsorship was £136.
