Weʼre raising £4,290 to help provide aid to poor communities in extreme need of help, while on a life changing 4 week expedition to Peru in Summer 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 charity.

My name is Lily Blackwell, I'm currently in year 11 at the Warriner School. I have been given the amazing opportunity to take part in a life changing 4 week expedition to Peru in summer 2019. The team will be providing aid to communities in extreme need of help. Examples of projects I will be doing with the team are listed below-
-School Feeding Project: The community of Kajilarakay is extremely poor with no basic sanitation or sewerage and a lack of clean drinking water. There is also a shortage of crops leading to malnutrition. The team will work on the school kitchen and greenhouse in order to provide a hygienic place to prepare meals.
-School Improvement: The remoteness and inaccessibility of the region Titicaca means that there is little or no help available from surrounding regions. We will build community facilities and a classroom for villagers, as well as restoring the school greenhouse
-Schools Improvement: The community of Pinchollo sits 3,600m above sea level. Due to the environment, they are very poor so we will be helping on long term projects to improve local life.
I would be extremely grateful to receive any donations which will enable me to take part in this incredible opportunity. Over the next 19 months, I will be arranging many fundraising activities such as film nights, fun runs and various physical activities (completely out of my comfort zone lol), as well as securing sponsorship. Many thanks for taking the time to read this it means a lot!!!
