Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
I am raising money to make a difference to the lives of young children and families in St Lucia, South Africa. The money raised all goes towards the projects on a two week volunteering trip in Africa. The program involves construction, conservation and education. More specifically, reconstruction and renovation of schools to enable children a safe environment to learn, working in the schools and orphanage to teach English and basic sanitation, hygeine and nutrition through games and activities.
The volunteer work also includes building sustainable farming facilities to allow for, in particular, single mothers to start a micro business and gain an income to support their families. They deserve the same opportunities we do, I aim to help achieve this.
Another aspect, is to work with the national parks authority areas of conservation within the wetlands area in the observation, capture and release of crocodiles, and working with Cheetahs and Leopards in a rehabilitation, breeding and release program. These animals are in desperate need of help and I want to help change their future as a species.
All donations go towards funding the project; purchasing materials and employing local trades people to continue with the work once our time is up. No money will be used for flights, accommodation costs etc as I will be paying this in advance.
So please, any small donation, I ask you to support this cause. To help change a life of those in need, to make lives full of opportunity, a helpless mother a competent supporter of her family, animals live the life of freedom they deserve. Because these families, children and animals deserve better and we can help create that for them.
Thank you to everyone who read my story and help change lives.
