What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

Egglescliffe has been working in partnership with Melamchi School in north east Nepal for over three years and has raised over £2000 to help fund classroom equipment and resources. The cultural partnership has allowed students in the UK to engage with students from Nepal and identify the commonalities of teenage life in starkly different settings.
Last year, the learning project was halted by the devastating earthquake in Nepal which claimed the entire school buildings. Miraculously, and by great mercy, no lives were lost in Melamchi.
However, the demand for the vital community resource to be rebuilt is strong. The spirit of the people is stronger. Classes resumed in makeshift tents within a month of the earthquake.
Working through Community Action Nepal, 12 students and 2 teachers will travel to Melamchi to continue the cross cultural experience, promote the community to our friends, family and colleagues back in the UK and boost the donating power of our school to create a sustainable fund to support the future of the whole Melamchi community.

    Thank you so much to everyone for their amazing support! The pupils are doing a fantastic job finding new and exciting ways to raise money. The Transporter Bridge abseil on Sunday is the first of many big things. (And what a big thing it is!) We'll be there at 9:15 on Sunday morning and the weather is set to be cold, particularly 165ft in the air.

    Here they are... How happy they look! I can't wait to take a similar photo 170ft above Middlesbrough! They've been busy too! Over the last couple of weeks they've been making and selling a range of Christmas products and raised £400. Added to our current total including donations here and other events they have totalled an amazing £3,800 so far. Thanks for all the amazing support from everyone who has helped them along their way.

I am a teacher at Egglescliffe School and along with another member of staff, we will travel with 12 students to Nepal in October 2017. We will be selling, entertaining, jumping, dancing, making and baking like mad for the next twelve months to hit our target!
