- Sheffield, UK
- Funded on Thursday, 30th August 2018
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.

In most country there is a "forgotten world" and the underpriviledged kids in the rural Zimbabwe fall under that category. Mopane Foundation International is supporting 35 kids; 5 from Shurugwi, 12 from Kezi, 6 from Tsholotsho, 7 from Nkayi & 5 from Matopo.
These kids have minimal or no access to current educational facilities their counterparts in the rest of country or world have. In the 21st century most havent visited anywhere further that the nearest school for a sports competition. Most know footbal, netball and running as the only sports available; they see a headteacher, policeman, a teacher and nurse as the most lucrative careers as thats what there are limited to. That is the mindset our organisation, Mopane Foundation International wish to change through this trip where these kids can see the city, spend their time exporing the industries and talking to professionals working within those industries, spend time finding out about the other world through cultural exchanges from kids in the city and from abroad (3 kids from England confirmed spending time with them). They will also be kids & play, party and sightsee.
The funds raised will cover their day to day expenses for the duration of 2 weeks

I loved field trips as a kid, and putting a little cash towards opening up options for a group of fellow Zimbo’s is a joy!
