Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
My name is Rebecca, I am a 19 year old student studying Criminology at Northumbria University. I am raising money for Reach Out Volunteering Charity to help orphans in South Africa.
Reach Out Volunteers is a volunteering charity who's aim is to change the world, one village at a time. Working hand-in-hand with its partner ROV Charity, Reach Out ensure that all projects are developed by the local community and create long-term sustainable benefit. If Reach Out can help a homeless family by building them a home, they WILL have make a difference to that family. If they do this with enough families they will help that community. If Reach Out can do this with enough communities they will help that country, and eventually, change the world. But the charity start by working with one village at a time. Volunteers, like myself assist in providing food, water, education, sanitation and shelter to deprived communities. Volunteers also help in protecting endangered species of animals around the world by tracking, monitoring, feeding, and building safe and vegetated habitats.
Reach Out Volunteers Charity works on projects to reduce the level of poverty in rural communities. The ROV Charity provides employment to local trades people, it purchases its building materials and supplies from local people. It builds water catchments in rural Cambodian communities to supply clean drinking water year round. This is critical in lowering infant mortality. In Peru the ROV Charity helps install ventilated cooking stoves to reduce smoke pollution in homes which is the main cause of the high levels of cancer and asthma in villagers homes.
The money will go to the ROV Charity and will help me to be able to work with and help orphans in South Africa. I will be heading off on my journey in May 2017, so my aim is to collect as much as i can before April 10th 2017.
Thank you for taking time to visit my page. I want to raise as much money as possible. Every penny counts! Thank you!
