Weʼre raising £200 to support Rebecca's living costs while volunteering in a Karen Hilltribes school
- Mae Hong Son, Thailand
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.
In January, I will be spending three months living amongst the Karen Hilltribes in Northern Thailand teaching English to primary and secondary school pupils who may not have had access to education without the work of the Karen Hilltribes Trust.
I am raising money for the Karen communities here, but I would also be so grateful for any support towards my living costs.
I have to contribute £200 to live alongside one of the Karen's families who will welcome me into their home, providing me with accommodation and meals during my stay. If this target is surpassed, any money donated afterwards will support other expenses such as vaccinations, visas and transport.
Your help will be much appreciated
- £3 will buy a bottle of sun cream to protect me from looking like a tomato
- £5 will cover some mosquito repellent so I can avoid malaria
- £20 will pay my host family for 10 days of food and accommodation
- £50 will cover 1/3 of my rabies vaccinations
- £70 will cover my 3-month visa so I don't get deported
Thanks so much for your help - I'll keep you posted on my fundraising journey and my time volunteering. Take a look at what the KHT are doing on their website! www.karenhilltribes.org.uk/home
