Weʼre raising £1,000 to support the funds of doing volunteer work in Ghana; helping some of the poorest children through play work and teaching.
- Bradford, 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 aim for this fundraising is to cover the costs that I will be spending whilst doing volunteer work over in Ghana in June 2019. I aim to spend two weeks working in Teaching and Playwork with younger children. These children have grown up in very poor conditions and education means a huge deal to them; something we all take for granted.
I need to cover the costs of the registration fee, flights, accommodation, resources for the children, the actual project cost, a visa, medication, transfers to and from the airport to the volunteer house, transport throughout the trip, meals and any additional costs that I have yet to discover/consider.
I will be volunteering to teach children basic Literacy and Mathematics whilst also doing the *typical* childcare work such as singing nursery rhymes, setting up educational activities to help their development, playing with them to even washing dirty hands, giving lots of cuddles and care. This will ultimately be exhilarating but rewarding to watch them as they learn and know that I played a special part in their life.
I will be providing the children with some durable toys and play equipment which can be reused even after I leave (donations are more than welcome!).
This volunteer work is 5 days per week, giving me the weekend to do things such as make activity plans, rest (it will be needed), explore some activities such as a safari and I will also be spending two days on an "outreach" programme to visit the more remote towns and cities, enter the "slums" and also to see the mud huts.
This trip will be life changing for not only myself but also for all of the children that live in these conditions. I hope to spread some hope but also give them the smallest bit of education to promote them onto the right step to a better life.
I hope I have covered all of the questions that you could possibly have as to why I am asking for donations but if you have any more; feel free to message me!
Thank you so much.
