Weʼre raising £2,500 to fundraise for a Hampshire Explorer Scout trip to Malawi to take part in community projects to benefit the people.
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.

In the summer of 2019, I am hoping to go on an international expedition to Malawi for three weeks with the Hampshire County Explorer Scouts run by the Magellen Explorer Unit. But to do this I need to fund raise £2,500.
During my trip I would be involved in community project work within a village working towards making their lives a little bit easier. Whilst there, we will be camping and learning what it is like to live in a developing contry and the hardships that come with this. We will be doing projects with some of the scouts from Malawi meaning we will have a personal view into someone's life; just going on holiday somewhere doesn't give you the chance to really understand the lives of the people that live there. By going on this expedition I would not only learn what life is like for them, but also make a positive impact upon their lives.
In Decmber 2017, I was lucky enough to go on a similar expedition to Gambia which was an amazing expierence that I will never forget. This next trip will hopefully be as wonderful and an expierence I will remember for the years to come!
