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.
My name is Nidup Dorji and I am from Bhutan. Bhutan is a very tiny country sandwiched between India and China. I'm studying in Sussex Coast College, Hastings and this is my second year in the UK. Before I came here, I never saw a guitar; when Bob and Stewart, our guitar tutor, showed me a guitar, I was wondering what it was? Ever since then, I learnt to play guitar by watching Youtube videos and I started practicing with them. This is gave me new dimension in my life and I even performed during The Beatles Day.
I will be finishing my A-Levels this June and as I plan for a gap year, I was a thinking of doing something that is not popular in my community; that is music. Music is something that the people enjoy a lot in the UK I but it is a rare case in Bhutan. So, while spending my gap year, I want to teach music in a School but I’m short of resources. I want to buy a guitar with an amplifier to take it to Bhutan, however, it is very expensive to buy an amplifier and a guitar. As I’m a student on scholarship from Pestalozzi, I am short of budget to buy it.
Thank you for your consideration.
