£950raised of £4,500 target by 31 supporters

Weʼre raising £4,500 to fund a 4-week expedition to Peru, involving community and ecological projects to aid local people; ending in a 5 day trek to Machu Picchu

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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Hardenhuish School are organising a month-long volunteer expedition to Peru to aid local communities through transformational projects in many different areas. 54% of Peru's rural communities live below the poverty line on under a $1 per day. 33% of under 15's are in employment to support their families rather than getting the education they deserve. 18% of rural Peruvians are malnourished and lacking fresh fruit and vegetables. I have volunteered for this trip to help provide a better quality of life for these communities and leave them with sustainable, long-term solutions to the problems they currently encounter.

For example, I will be building classrooms/kindergartens; constructing community housing from local materials; improving local healthcare and sanitation through better amenities and creating sustainable livelihoods by digging irrigation and replanting indigenous plants. After 3 weeks of hard work, the expedition culminates in a 5-day trek following the Salkantay Trail to Machu Picchu

With your help, I will be able to undertake this expedition and benefit these communities. It will be a fantastic experience for me also, and one that will undoubtedly prove life-changing -not only for me, but the locals in Peru also.

    The final Hurdle! Owen is nearly there and has actually raised over 90% of his final target figure! We are doing our (hopefully) final event on the first weekend in March where we will try and visit every purchaseable property on the monopoly board! Please help us get to our final target figure and continue to sponsor Owen in his events. We are so grateful to all of you for your generosity and thank you in advance for any £££s you can spare to take us over the finishing line! We will post some photos after the event as evidence!

    Thank you so much for all the support for our Snowdon climb yesterday - your generosity has been absolutely amazing and we raised a total of £585 for the event! This puts my total figure to £2,100 which is incredible and puts me at 47% of my total figure! Thank you all so much - I am so appreciative and looking forward already to my next event.

    Preparing for the next phase of fund-raising for Owen's Peru expedition - climbing Snowdon and Scafell Pike during May half-term. Please give what you can. He has so far raised £1,246 - which is just over 27% of the amount needed! A great effort so far, but a long way to go (in every sense!). Thank you to everyone in advance!
