Weʼre raising £1,000 to Help Fund my Trip to Volunteer in Borneo 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.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In February 2019, I will be travelling to Borneo with Camps International to volunteer there for 7 weeks. My time will be spent working with the community, helping with conservation projects and working on the sustainable management within the area.
Borneo is a particularly important area to be volunteering in at the moment, being at the forefront of the effects of climate change and the increasing global human population. One-third of the island is made up of a large and dynamic rain forest where a lot of my work with sustainability will take place. This rain forest is also home to a large number of different endangered species like orangutans and elephants and part of my project will include working with the environment to save these species from extinction.
Whilst I will be able to fund most of the trip myself, I will not be able to cover the whole cost so I will need some additional funding. I will spend the next year raising more money for my trip, and using the opportunity to raise awareness of the problems going on in Borneo at the moment!
