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 Katie Hutchinson. I have just finished my first year at Brighton University studying Physical Education. During my time at University, I was lucky enough to learn about Football 4 Peace, which is an organisation run by the university to provide the catalyst to intervene where cultural conflict exists. After researching it, I decided that I wanted to be part of the team, and I was fortunate enough to gain a place on the program.
My aim is to raise £800 to be able to travel to Gambia in December 2018 for two weeks, as a trained Tier 2 Community Coach. Along with other volunteers, we will be delivering various sessions to young children, aiming to display and teach the key values of sport which are: inclusion, social contact and peaceful coexistence. As well as enhancing the key values of Football for peace (F4P): trust, inclusion, equality and respect. Our main goal is to teach these values, which will impact on the young children leading them to transfer the skills into their everyday life. A main cultural difference in Gambia is the collision of different tribes, creating conflict between the children. By using football, we aim to unite the children and build long lasting friendships.
