Weʼre raising £8,000 to ONGAR GIRLS WORLD CHALLENGE
- Ongar, Essex
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.
We are both 17 year old students from Ongar who have signed up for a World Challenge which will lead to a three week educational expedition to Malaysia and Borneo in July 2019. The most important part of the trip is to get involved in a community project supporting local life in as many ways as possible: this may be rebuilding or construction homes, school or medical centres, teaching the local children English and informing them about wildlife protection and the dangers of poachers.
We have to raise £4000 each for the cost of the expedition ourselves and plan / budget the journey including the travel arrangements, accommodation, food and any equipment we will need to help with the community project.
Whilst in Malaysia and Borneo we will take part in a trek through different terrains. This challenge will help us learn skills that we will take into later life and employment - not just from the trip itself but the fund-raising and planning over the next year in order to make the trip happen.
