Weʼre raising £2,000 to help my friends Sayouba, Marien and Basile build a classroom in Burkina to teach children who can't attend school
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.
When I set up Coaching for Hope in Burkina Faso it was all about giving young people a chance in life. A country full of young people with so much promise and so little resource needs a lot of help and on my last trip I met Sayouba, a young man who was studying English and had many hopes and dreams. He had lost his parents at a young age and didn't have any family to support him but he formed a Young Leaders Association together with some friends and their mission is to do something good for their community. They coach football, they teach English and maths, they clear up litter and recycle plastic, they talk to their peers about HIV and sexual health, they are model citizens and I would like to help them get a piece of land and build a class room on it so that they have a base. If you could help them to achieve this dream it would be such a great way to show them that people outside their country have faith in their courage and commitment so please see if you can give a little (or a lot) and get us to our target.
