    Weʼve raised £10 to Help me set up a project where I can deliver Philosophy talks to prison inmates and help them make positive changes to their self awareness

    Sheffield, UK
    Funded on Saturday, 11th August 2018

    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.

    Story

    Prisoners are potential assets to society. Philosophy talks will inspire them to think more deeply and creatively and be aware that issues they might think are unique to them have actually preoccupied individuals for thousands of years.

    Right now inmates are just left to rot in their cells sometimes for up to 23 hrs a day. How does this benefit them or society?

    The aim is to encourage people to take better ownership of their thoughts and to make better life decisions.

    Otherwise people leave prison with false thinking and filled with even more hatred of a system that has ignored them.

    The funds will help me to become accredited, help me with a simple office set-up and mean I can trial the project in local prisons first. (I already hold a first degree in politics and social science).
