Weʼve raised £920 to build a school in Ghana
- Funded on Thursday, 31st October 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
As many of you know, five employees from Kreston Reeves had our dreams made true at the Firm wide event; to take part in a community build for a developing community.
As a team, we have decided to fly to Ghana and spend 10 days volunteering in a small village. This is a project close to many of our hearts and is something we have all been interested in doing for such a long time.
This is where you can help! We need to raise a minimum of £1,800 each to help with the build and get ourselves there. Roughly 70% of this figure (anything above our personal expenditure) will be matched by the Kreston Reeves Foundation and can be a value up to £10,000. This means between five of us there is a potential to raise a significant amount for a charity, which along with our hard graft, will make an enormous impact to those in need.
For the 10 days we’ll be in Ghana we will be volunteering with activities ranging from; assisting in building a school or health clinic; and rainwater harvesting or improving sanitation by building a toilet block of hand dug wells.
We will have time to volunteer in other areas of the local community. This will include; after school clubs; adult education classes; and health sessions.
We are going to be able to make a HUGE difference to those who need it. We just need a little help getting there.
We will be undergoing the work thanks to the amazing charity POD (PODVolunteers ) and any additional donations along with the match funding will be greatly received by a secondary charity working in close proximity to which we build
This is such an amazing opportunity and we greatly appreciate any donation, large or small. In advance, thank you to you all, and Kreston Reeves, for making our dreams come true. You're all amazing!!
