Weʼre raising £2,000 to help fund an exciting expedition to Swaziland in 2020.
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.

Hello, my name is Oliver and I am fifteen years old. In July 2020, I hope to embark on an exciting expedition to Swaziland (or eSwatini) in Southern Africa with the organisation World Challenge.
Not only will this trip consist of a challenging hike through some of Africa’s most dramatic countryside, but will also involve much needed voluntary work in one of Swaziland’s poorest communities. This might include the construction of a small classroom or the installation of a water well in a country greatly affected by the Sub-Saharan African HIV/AIDS pandemic, which has orphaned many young children.
To finance this opportunity, fundraising is essential. My friends and I hope to hold events in the future, so watch this space! I also intend to take part in sponsored activities. This expedition will only be possible with generous donations (both small and large) from you - thank you wholeheartedly in advance for any contribution you can make.
