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 Jessie and I am currently studying my GCSE's at school. Along side my studies I like to keep myself busy playing sport, keeping active, seeing friends and family and helping others, which is where my story begins!
During my final year of school I have been given a once in a lifetime opportunity to go on an expedition to Cambodia where I will stay for a total of 4 weeks, helping to make a huge difference to other peoples lives by undertaking projects which could include:
-EDUCATION: Helping generations of children and babies by building new school classrooms or kindergartens.
-HOUSING: Constructing vitally needed community housing from local materials for some of the most impoverished families.
-HEALTHCARE & SANITATION: Improving the health of a whole community through installing and improving local amenities.
-FOOD & WATER SECURITY: Installing new water supplies to ensure school children have access to fresh, clean drinking water.
-ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION: Replanting saplings in areas affected by deforestation.
-SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS: Building a dam to provide water for crops throughout the dry season.
These are only a few of the life changing projects I will be taking a part of, however to enable me to take part in this amazing opportunity a lot of money needs to be raised to get me there! Any donations towards this trip would be extremely appreciated and would not only help me to take part in this experience but it will also be a huge contribution to helping to improve the lives of others.
Please keep checking out my Facebook page for more fundraising activities I will be taking part in and hosting in the near future. Furthermore keep a look out in 2019 for the photographs and blog updates about my adventure. https://www.facebook.com/jessie.cooper.96387 or enter Jessie's Cambodia Trip into the search bar.
