Weʼre raising £200 to Voluntary Expedition to Ecuador in 2019 with Camps International
- Northwich, UK
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 Kate Williams and I am 15 years old. I have had through Weaverham High School and Camps International the opportunity to go to Ecuador to volunteer to undertake projects in order to:
• Raise the educational standards of developing communities within a rural district of Ecuador. We will be building a kitchen for a school, where for some children this is their only meal of the day.
• Raise the living standards of developing communities, within a rural district of Ecuador by establishing a sustainable community garden that can be used for reforestation and preserving cultural medicinal knowledge.
• Assist with ongoing wildlife conservation programmes to preserve biodiversity and protect vulnerable habitats within the Ecuadorian rainforest.
To be able to do this I have to raise £4,900 in order to be able to go. I have already raised over £3000 through various ventures including running a tuck shop at school, face painting, organising a South American themed meal, running an auction and selling unwanted books however I still I have some way to go. As the trip is organised through my school, I would also have the opportunity to gain UCAS points from doing this, I would be learning about the communities I am helping as well as plants and wildlife and hopefully a lot about myself. This opportunity would help me immensely with my self-confidence, independence and with my ultimate aim of helping people.
