Weʼre raising £1,000 to help fund my humanitarian expedition to Kenya, so i can provide free healthcare to women and children living in poverty
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.
I hope to raise £1000 to help fund my humanitarian trip to Kenya. It will enable me to travel to some of the most remote locations in the country and reach communities that rarely receive any healthcare or education.
The charity I work for is called the Divinity Foundation, and through their expeditions, we provide free healthcare, education, food and clothing for impoverished women and children. www.divinityfoundation.com
We work in many different areas, but in particular we focus on the Maasai girls as they are still subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM). We provide education within the Maasai communities, a rescue home for those fleeing FGM, and free healthcare for those suffering the aftermath.
It is tough and often heart-breaking work, but through the charity's amazing work we have managed to educate the cutters about the dangers of their work, provide a rescue home for girls at risk, provide alternative rites of passage and empower the tribal chiefs to make changes in their community.
I am so grateful for any support you feel able to give, be that a fiver or a pack of toothbrushes i can take out with me. Your help goes directly into the hands that need it the most.
Thank you so much :-)
