Weʼve raised £426 to get to India and volunteer for Snehalaya charity.
- Funded on Monday, 13th March 2017
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.
(Please note this page is to help me raise the funds to go to India and volunteer for the charity. All money raised and left over after flights and essentials are paid for will go to the charity, and if you want to donate just to the charity please visit: https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/lucyhamilton1
Events will take place to raise money for Snehalaya too).
I have joined the India Project at the University of Leeds, working with the Snehalaya organisation. My involvement in this will include raising a minimum of £400 to support the charity directly, and two weeks of voluntary work in the Easter break of 2017 where I will go to India and help with the projects that are set up there.
I will be hosting some fund-raising events too if you want to get involved and not simply 'just give.' I will keep this posted on my facebook page so please get involved!
The charity Snehalaya works in India to provide healthcare, education, rehabilitation and awareness to all women and children who have been affected by poverty, sex trafficking, sex abuse, HIV and AIDS.
