What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


We have supported Katiyo Primary School since 2001. Last year we bought them the first set of Happy Reader books, a reading scheme designed for African English as a second language learners and speakers of Shona in particular (Shona is the 1st language of most children at Katiyo.)
The Grade One set of books has given the children a chance to read exciting and interesting stories that are relevant to them, to have books they can borrow to take home for the first time and to read for pleasure.

We are now trying to raise the £600+ needed to buy the grade two set and then another £600 or so to buy the grade three set.

We have supported the school since 2001 and every little thing we can do for them means a lot and makes a big difference.

I fly on 18th July and the equipment will be with the school by the end of the month.

£60 on another bag on the plane to get the gear out to the school. The rest on buying supplies (£200 is the minimum you can crowd fund for!)

    Our page is showing up a little garbled - we are fundraising to buy the Happy Reader books, not to fly out equipment to the school. That's an old cause and is somehow getting all mixed up with this one!
