Weʼre raising £2,000 to raise money for a journey to Cambodia in 2018 where I will help build houses, schools and carry out environmental work for the communities

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
I have been provided an amazing opportunity of an expedition to Cambodia in 2018. I will be 15 years old. The reason that I asked my parents if I could go was that I see it as an experience what will have an impact on my life, whilst I will be giving my time to help the children and communities in Cambodia. I enjoy school and sports yet many children in Cambodia do not have access to education of any kind. All children should be able to have an education.
Some of the statistics 50% of cambodian children do not receive an education
33% live below the poverty line
30% of the population have no access to fresh drinking water.
Education shouldn't be a value it should be a gift for the youth of our world. I want to help them get what they deserve, brick by brick, layer after layer. Everyone deserves an education as it is the most important thing in our world. I would like to help by being involved in building new classrooms for the children, constructing housing for the impoversihed families and installing new water supplies to ensure children have fresh clean drinking water. The cost of this expedition is just under £4000 and I will be undertaking several events ie cake sales to help raise money to fund this.

Hi, I'm Marcus, 14 years old. I've been offered an amazing opportunity to go to Cambodia in 2018 where I will be involved in building houses, schools and environmental work for the local children and communities. I have already held a cake sale to raise money at my rugby club.
