    Weʼve raised £305 to help Esme visit India on an educational trip

    Funded on Thursday, 16th August 2018

    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 am running the Newport marathon in South Wales on Sunday April 29th. I am asking for sponsorship to support a trip that my daughter Esme is taking to India.

    In July 2019 Esme, 16, is going to India on a 19-day expedition with Malmesbury school. This is to learn about Indian society, people, religion and politics.

    Esme will visit monasteries and temples and trek in the Himalayas. Highlights include a visit to a village for Tibetan refugees, spending time at a primary school, and meeting Dolls4Tibet, a Fairtrade business that provides jobs and empowerment for women. Esme will also spend time with a charity called Tong Len to learn how it is improving health and education in slums.

    The trip is organised by Global Action; To go on the trip Esme needs to raise £3390.

    Any contribution, however small, is much appreciated.

    Thank you
