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.
Above is a picture of my cousin, Shama. Just look at that smile… Shama is happy because with the little money I was able to send him, he managed to afford a school uniform and comfy shoes to be walking to school in. I have so much more family that need my financial support but I can only do so much on my own. I need your help.
Once I heard that my cousin, Shama, was complaining to his struggling mum about him wearing hand-me-downs and his shoes being too small and broken and how much he was pleading to be like the other kids, I realised I had to start doing something.
I have many other family members just like Shama. For example my older cousin David has an aspiration to become a doctor so that he is able to feed his family however, he cannot afford his college fees and there’s only so much I can do and that is why I need your donations.
However, this time I am not going to sit down in my privileged lifestyle and “send” the money over, instead me and a few other determined evangelists are ready to go out and make a difference for my family and other precious families that deserve a chance of a longer life.
I no longer want to sit back and allow the government in Rwanda decide where my money should go. So, with the help of your donation, we will be able to ensure you that ALL of my family and other families with get the most out of it.
As we enter Rwanda , we are hoping to provide them with an education to succeed. This will be buy paying off my cousins college fund and improving local school, We also plan to provide them with the healthcare they need to survive which we will do by giving financial support for the hospitals and giving them the basic food and water they need to prevent them from staying malnourished.
Our group will be documenting the whole journey from start to finish and we will be posting it to YouTube so you will be able to see where your donations will be going to.
With your prayers and financial support, YOU are helping us play our part as the church by doing what we are called to do; "Speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute". Proverbs 31:8
Every penny counts for this and I am still willing to go with the bare minimum I am able to raise.
God bless you all and thank you !!
