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.
Hello! My name is Jakob and I am a student at Diss High School.
I intend to participate in an expedition to Kenya in the Summer of 2019.
This will be a four week expedition and will include community development work, environmental projects and wildlife conservation. This is endorsed by the school but is organised by Camps International.
The core objectives of this expedition are to undertake projects in order to:
Raise the educational standards of developing communities within a rural district of Kenya by helping with building projects (ie, schools, community facilities etc).
Helping to raise the living standards of developing communities, within a rural district of Kenya by helping those in great poverty or the general community within the area.
Assist with ongoing wildlife conservation programmes to preserve biodiversity and protect vulnerable habitats such as Elephants who are constantly being hunted and are seen as a threat in rural Kenya.
I would be extremely grateful for any and all contributions you can make towards my fundraising.
Thankyou in anticipation

Hi, I don’t know you but my son is also doing this trip with another school. Your link came up as a suggested donation, so I went with the flow and donated and hope other people do the same. Good luck

Hi Jakob, what a fantastic way to spend the summer. Kenya is one of my favourite countries. Try to visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust near Nairobi, they rescue orphaned elephants.
