Weʼve raised £85 to help Peruvian children I worked with in the past three months, who live in low-income communities and have very difficult family background

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.
There are three things you need to know about why I’m fundraising.
1) The challenge of my life is just behind me: in the past 3 months, I was volunteering for a charity called Otra Cosa Network in Peru. Besides being in charge of digital marketing, I was working with children who come from dysfunctional families with major economic problems, and struggle to keep up with school. I was developing activities and projects for the boys and helping them develop and learn useful skills they can benefit from in the future.
2) I fell in love with my project and would like to continue supporting the boys from the distance, therefore, I'm raising some funds. Therefore, I’m turning to you to ask for your help. If you think what I was doing is meaningful and you would like to contribute to projects that promote education and social development in local communities in North Peru, please donate.
3) Because the Otra Cosa Network and its local partner that runs the children’s home have so limited resources and can’t count on support from the government, I’m planning to send the money to them so that they can buy some materials and equipment, such as boardgames, books etc. that the kids need.
I highly appreciate if you have got so far in this. If you still think, my challenge has made a difference and you are willing to support it, please do so. Every small donation counts.
Thank you in advance for your support and in compensation, you can find some stories and photos on how I worked together with the children and learnt together with them about myself, their culture and human rights.
