£795raised of £5,000 target by 27 supporters

    Weʼve raised £795 to build classrooms, installing drinking water & playground equipment in Berega, Tanzania, with a group of young adults from Congleton

    Congleton, United Kingdom
    Funded on Friday, 31st 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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    In July 2018 a team of 11 volunteers (Sue W, Zoey C, Emma T, Jess B, Lindsay F, Geoff W, Peter D, Mark W, Tom B, Tom L, Rhys B) will be going out from New Life Church in Congleton to help build much need classrooms in Bishop Chitemo Primary School in Berega Tanzania.

    We will also be installing rain water harvesting tanks to provide clean drinking water for some of the poorest residents of Tanzania


    We will be renovating parts of the orphanage too. .

    We have been taking teams of young people and adults to help the village since 2002 and have a great relationship with them. They love the fact that we don’t just send money but love them enough to go and do the work alongside them. We receive more by going to serve than we can ever give to these amazing people

    The team will work with the local villagers & the BREAD Trust ensuring that every penny raised will go to funding these projects. Please donate and help us make a big difference in this small place

      The team has returned from Tanzania, feeling glad to be home but proud of what they have achieved. Our fund raising would not have been possible without your support. Our goal was to raise £5k to support projects in the schools, hospital & orphanage but we raised over £10k for projects, meaning we could do so much more and fund new equipment & local work to continue during the rest of this year (equipment & mattress’ for the hospital, electricity to one school & new toilets for another, building repair work at the orphanage…. to name but a few)

      With 6 weeks to go before we head out to Berega, the team have been blessed with such great fundraising that we have over £8,000 in donations to add to the crowd funding, giving the current total of over £8,700. Thank you to all those that took part in the Quiz Night, Murder Mystery, Line Dancing, Garden Party, Curry Club evenings and to those that just wanted to support this group of young adults and the work they will be doing for others.

      Our off-line donations have reach over £800. Add to that the generous donations made on this Just Giving site of £230, means we are now over 20% of the way to our target at over £1,000. Many thanks to all of you who are supporting this group of young adults from Congleton
