- Funded on Friday, 3rd November 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.
To support International volunteering in South Africa along with a local girl guiding group.
To help combat one of South Africa's largest and mostly preventable deaths, 600,000 people die every year due to being overcome by toxic smoke whilst cooking indoors. Today three billion people are still believed to be cooking and heating their internal homes with open fires and simple wood burning stoves. This occurance kills more people each year than TB, AIDS and Malaria.
We shall be working with partners to educate and provide individuals with equipment that will remove this entire risk.
Educational groups are required to reach those in remote locations unaware of this silent killer.
Help support this cause, please fund our work.
If you have any questions about the cause, please feel free to send me a message, I will happily answer any questions that may arise.
I will also be running lots of events during the upcoming few months so please get involved. Thank you.

Good cause to support, I presume this will involve installing solar panels either individual or community?

I am trying to give back to society as much as I possibly can, I have for the past 6 months supported a local Girl Guiding group of which I am undertaking my leadership certification with at the moment, but I also try to do something additional each year.
