    Weʼve raised £965 to Fund a community project in Zambia

    London, UK
    Funded on Monday, 13th 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.


    On the 27th of May I (and my mum) will be undertaking The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, a 24 mile walk up and down Ingleborough Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside, to fundraise for my expedition to Zambia in the summer of 2019.

    I am doing the trip to Zambia with World Challenge, an organisation that supports community projects across the world, including Zambia. During the trip I will collaborate with local builders to construct a new home for a member of the Mwandi community. This will include learning about traditional mud and stick building techniques to create a safe space for vulnerable members of the community. I will also live alongside villagers, immersed in rural life for authentic engagement with Zambian culture.

    This will be an extremely valuable experience but will cost a lot of money to fund. In order to pay for the expedition I have to raise £4,350 and part of the ethos underpinning World Challenge is that participants should take on personal challenges of their own to fund raise.

    Thank you very much for the taking the time to read this. If you would like to contribute, however small your donation, it would be very much appreciated.
