    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.


    John Midgley's Challenge

    Touchstone is building 24 houses for vulnerable and orphan children in Chimombo, Malawi and providing associated health and legal training.

    Malawi is the 6th poorest country in the world and the children in this rural area need our help. To mark his retirement from Touchstone, John has committed to raising £12,500 to build a new nursery for the children in the villages overseen by Group Village Headman Chimombo, to provide training for care givers and seed capital for income generation to make the nursery sustainable.

    With your help we can provide a nursery for 450 children, giving them an improved education and an increased opportunity to lift themselves out of poverty.
