What is crowdfunding?

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.


I first met Robert and Mary in 2013 on my first visit alone to Tanzania. It is was a chance meeting. Robert happens to be the only violin teacher and I helped with a little masterclass and concert for his pupils. He invited me out to visit the children’s home and I knew immediately it would be a place I would revisit many times. This summer I go back for my 3rd visit and Chris, Herbie and Maimis 2nd. We cannot wait to see all the children that are now our friends and spend some time with Robert and Mary.


Always a barefoot footy oportunity somewhere for Herbie and some of the preschool kids 2014. Maimi giving alfresco recorder lessons at the childrens home. Me and Chris in the classrooms.

This is me on my first visit to the childrens home in 2013.
