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 a sixth year student at St. Margaret’s Academy in Livingston where I am currently working on the project along with a group of other students and staff members.
The project is based in Malawi where the challenges of poverty are daunting as the average person lives on less than one U.S. dollar a day. Many children face significant barriers to succeeding in school as they suffer from lack of resources, poor building conditions and limited accessibility. The project focuses on addressing such barriers so that through education children will be provided with a pathway out of the cycle of poverty.
The group will travel to Malawi in June/ July 2017 to work primarily on refurbishing two existing classrooms and building two new classrooms in the region of Mwanza. Through working with the nearby Mary’s Meals kitchen, built by a similar project from St. Margaret’s Academy, we will be able to provide the children with a daily meal. In addition, we will work to support the school, local families and orphanages through donations of clothes, books, toys and school equipment.
St. Margaret’s Academy has successfully completed similar projects in recent years which have significantly improved the welfare situation of many children. I am sure that this project will also result in a success however, in order to be a part of this success I am required to cover the cost of my travel expenses, vaccinations and medication. These costs are high due to the long distance to Malawi and I am unable to cover them myself. I would therefore greatly appreciate any financial support you could offer to help cover my fares so that I can fulfil my long standing ambition of completing this project.
Thank you for your support.
