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.


I am trying to fund-raise for the Global Hands Community Development Hub and Education Trust fund, which supports young people in The Gambia, where I will be visiting in June. Setup as a Community Interest Company and a Charity, Global Hands aims to tackle issues regarding local and global inequality by raising consciousness about local and global issues through community engagement. Global Hands is also interested in supporting people build their capacities to address these issues by engaging communities through informal and non-formal methodologies to provoke their consciousness, leading to an action they choose that is commensurate to their abilities.

I will also be selling arts prints to raise money (some examples of my work can be seen here: please get in touch for more info!

​Any donations will be put towards supporting my trip costs and resources for the projects taking place in The Gambia. Thank you!
