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.
Igaal Shidad school has almost nothing. It has a building and we've built a fence last month. It has a board with the school name on and there are sixty children waiting to be taught. There are no desks, tables or chairs, students sit on the floor.
There are no textbooks, chalk, pens or exercise books, just an enthusiastic teacher who had been working for free - we are paying him now. The school has no electricity and crucially - no water.
We would like to provide fresh running water for the children to drink and wash and connect to the existing toilet. Can you help us please?
Providing education can change the course of a child's life, lifting them up and giving them a better future. Would you do this please?
We are supporting a small new charity called HELP Dadaab who helps refugees and the host community in Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya.
If we reach £2000 we will connect an existing borehole to the school and enable the pupils to stay in the building during all their lessons.

About the fundraiser
HELP Dadaab helps refugees in one of the largest refugee camps in the world; Dadaab in Kenya. Conditions are hard for those living there. We are the largest provider of secondary education in the camp and provided diploma courses to 40 students last year. We aim for 50 this year
