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.


The Project is in Tanzania, East Africa in the Ugweno valley of the North Pare Mountains, with a spectacular view of Mt Kilimanjaro to the north. My retired parents in law established their own charity for children in need to give back to the community where my mother in law is from. They have formed their charity in 2004 and have been raising funds since then through car boot sales, donations and funding. Thanks to the generosity of people they were able to build an orphanage, a school, a church and water supply for the community and continue to support the children throughout boarding school by paying their school fees and uniforms.

The community project that strives to give basic care and love to all in need, particularly orphaned children, widows and the poor in the communities. Many children in this area are orphaned due to poverty and disease. Most of the orphans live with a guardian, but they have found that some of these guardians are either very old grandparents or poor relatives, struggling to raise these children in a very harsh environment. At the project, the Matron has full responsibility and is very close and loving to all the children. The Matron and the Community Manager give the children health checks and make an assessment of their home life. Some of the primary school children come from very poor homes. It is necessary to meet their needs by providing them with uniforms and school items. All needs and reports are forwarded to the project’s Managing Director and the Child Welfare Officer in Tanzania.

The focus of the charity is now on educating the orphans, paying their school fees and provide all necessities that go with it, including school uniforms, books, learning materials, etc.

    As a White Clarke Group employee we always strive to support charities. This time we have decided to help out my retired parents in law who run their own charity by raising funds for their cause to help sustain what they have established already.
