£160raised of £5,000 target by 9 supporters

    Weʼve raised £160 to support the work of Metro World Child by doing the Mt. Kilimanjaro Klimbing for Kids challenge in Tanzania

    Glasgow, UK
    Funded on Friday, 10th August 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    Child poverty is everyone's business. Metro World Child is a global, faith-based humanitarian organisation based in Brooklyn and dedicated to serving inner-city children throughout New York, Peru, Kenya, South Africa, Romania, India and the Philippines. I will be participating in the 2018 Klimbing For Kids to raise money for the kids.

    The Work of Metro

    Many children cannot afford school meals, go hungry and sometimes even faint in class. They go to school in torn uniforms. Feeding programs are part of child sponsorship, providing school lunches for the children.
    Many of the schools lack of clean water to sustain the children and basic hygiene becomes a problem. Metro installed their first water tank in a school in Kenya and work with local schools to meet the needs of children. Their teams do outreach programs to spread the love of God.

    Many children live in abject poverty, searching for food in garbage. Some children have to stop going to school to help their parents earn a living by scavenging in piles of garbage. Due to poor conditions, including lack of clean water, thousands of children suffer or die every day because they don't have access to medicine to save their lives.

    The Target

    Help me to get to the Mt Kilimanjaro in October 2018. I pledged to raise £5000 by end of August to:
    - expand feeding programs and build wells in Kenya;
    - reach out to isolated gypsy children living in encampments in Romania, meeting their physical needs, providing them with warm sock and boots in winter;
    - provide medicine, food (one meal per day), clothing such as shoes, socks, uniforms, transportation and school bags to enable children to attend school.

    Any funds above that will be used for my expenses to get to Tanzania! Please help me to get there!
