Weʼve raised £570 to support Luke's volunteer work to build and furnish a much needed youth community centre in a remote village in Swaziland
- Sawbridgeworth, United Kingdom
- Funded on Sunday, 15th October 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.
I am very lucky to be chosen to go on an Explorer Scout expedition in July 2018 to Matsapha in Swaziland, Africa, to help build and furnish the Malibeni Youth Centre.
The Centre will be a really important place to which local young people can come to join in activities that develop their physical and mental wellbeing, where they can learn and interact, as a way of keeping them off the streets and out of trouble, and ultimately helping them to find work.
I will be helping with building work, tree planting, painting, fetching water and also helping with a food relief programme for local children.
I would be very grateful for any donations to help me take part in this amazing opportunity and to play some small part in improving the lives of youngsters living within this community.
To say thank you I plan to send all donors a set of postcards of the watercolour sketches I intend to paint in any spare time I have when I am there.

About the fundraiser
Sawbridgeworth, United Kingdom
Scouts and watercolour painting are big interests of mine. I have been in Scouts since I was six years old (as a Beaver) and was very pleased to achieve the Chief Scout's Gold Award last year. I love doing sketches and paintings of the places I travel to.
