£195raised of £4,000 target by 8 supporters

Weʼre raising £4,000 to go to Peru in July 2019 to work in the community to improve primary school facilities, help with food growing and to provide education

What is crowdfunding?

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.


I'd never thought about doing anything like this and then in April 2018, my school was visited by 'Camps International' who told us about all of the work that they do in Peru to work to improve their Community.

Up until that point, I hadn't realised quite how poor Peru was, but then I learnt that 500,000 children in Peru are suffering from malnutrition which was shocking.

'Camps International' provide an opportunity for young people like me to make a difference in their lives by helping them improve their communities. I will be supporting and working with them to build and improve their primary school facilities.

I will also be helping them learn to be self sufficient by planting seeds, building greenhouses to grow food and also to provide educational support in learning basic life skills that we all take for granted in Northern Ireland.

Did you know that 57% of young women and 42% of young men in Rural areas of Peru don't finish secondary school?

A lot of people in the UK take education for granted, yet for those young people in Peru it is a essential to improving not only their lives but also the lives of their entire community. That's why I would like to volunteer 3 weeks of my school holidays to make their lives better.

I would really appreciate it if you could please help me in this Project to go to Peru and make this happen. In addition, for every £1 you donate, 36pence will go directly to the Peruvians themselves (via Camps International), with the rest of the funding going towards the cost of the expedition.

Thank you so much for your support.
