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 is to extend my current planned volunteering trip to India in July 2019 to volunteer in a Hospital for three weeks to also go further and go to Accra in Ghana for two weeks also to volunteer in a Orphanage. I am a 15 year old who has a budding ambition to become a consultant Forensic Pathologist and I have a real passion for working with children, through my work as a volunteer with the Scouts Association and the Police Scotland Youth Volunteers and I also love working with those in need in my community which I do on a regular basis when I pay the elderly and disabled people visits in my community. I love to work and volunteer and this project will give me the opportunity to help other people in desperate need. My work over there will consist of working with children teaching them English, helping them get washed and dressed and all the tasks that need to be done to help a young person flourish and become a healthy, educated and cared for individual. Whilst volunteering in the orphanage I will have the opportunity to learn from the children just as much as they can learn from me and I will aim to really boost their confidence and allow them to have a better quality life from the one they may previously have had. This project is a fantastic project run by Global Volunteer Projects which is another branch of Global Medical Projects who is organising my trip to India to volunteer. I do encourage you to look into (http://globalvolunteerprojects.org/orphanage/ghana.htm). I am aiming to raise an extra £1640 on top of my original £2500, in order to be able to cover all the costs. I currently have raised £1999 from sponsored silences and collection buckets so I have £2141 left to raise. I have many events in early planning stages such as coffee mornings and family fun days to help raise the funds. Below is a breakdown of my expected costs –
Global Volunteer Projects (£700)
Food and Accommodation (£190) , Overseas Office Costs (£170) , Airport Pickup and Transport (£109.50 ), Other (£110.50) , Donation( £120 )
Flights (£600 ), Inoculations (£50) , Insurance (£30) , Visa (£60) , Prizes, gifts and teaching aids (£50 ), Food for Weekends etc (£150)
Please visit my JustGiving page for my India trip - https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/kieranrhodes1
I cannot meet my goal without your support so please donate! No matter how big or small your donation it will contribute massively to the cost of the trip. Your donations not only help me to complete the project but the orphanage also will gain a donation of £120 and the support of a volunteer for three weeks.
I would like to thank anyone who has made a donation!
