Weʼve raised £480 to World Challenge to Borneo
- London, United Kingdom
- Funded on Thursday, 28th September 2017
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.
My name is Isabella Ward, I'm 14 years old and attend Sydenham High School.
In the summer of 2018, I will be traveling to Borneo for a month along with other pupils from our School, to take part in a World Challenge Expedition.
The expedition is about helping others, exploring and pushing ourselves beyond our limits.
Our first few days will be spent adapting to very different surrounding, climate and living conditions. We will then start a trek through Gunung Mulu Park. We will be taking part in a community project, giving us the opportunity to mix and learn from the locals and find out first hand what they need from us to help them.
The adventurous part of our expedition will be climbing Mount Kinabalu, the most sacred mountain in Indonesia and a great landmark of Borneo. A fantastic opportunity for us all.
The community project is the part that I am most looking forward to. To be able to help others in a village less fortunate to us will be so rewarding and humbling.
This is only half the challenge. The other part, is for me to raise £2000 towards the cost of the expedition. This will cover food, accommodation and travel costs. I will be taking part in the colour run 2017,Mud Run, and have already done bag packing in supermarkets and boot sales to help with my fund raising.
I want to make a difference. This will be my first expedition and I will give my all to this challenge. I am so excited to be able to take part and have this opportunity.
Any contribution, no matter how small will be greatly appreciated.
