Weʼre raising £18,000 to provide the Haneti Secondry School, in Africa, with light
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.
King David High School's Year 10 are in partnership with Innovation Africa to help provide the Haneti Secondary School in Tanzania, Africa with electricity.
Innovation Africa are a non-profit organisation on a mission to bring innovative Israeli solar and water technologies to remote African villages.
Haneti Secondary School is home to 252 students. These students are in classes all day and then return home to farming, gathering wood and fetching water. They return to school for evening studies and homework help. Haneti students use candles or rechargeable lamps every night for studying, which typically don't last for more than one hour. The lights usually go out before students are able to go through all the subjects they need to study, making it harder for them to reach their full potential.
We, along with Innovation Africa and support with the ZCC, are wanting to raise $18,000 to provide them with electricity and to create an everlasting friendship between the Haneti school and ours.
