Weʼre raising £1,000 to Help go to East Africa to support rural communities, protect wildlife and preserve fragile ecosystems.
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.
Nearly half of the population in Kenya live on less than $1 a day, leaving many unable to send their children to school and leaving many Kenyans undernourished and as a result the average life expectancy is 55 years, which in the 21st century is appalling. Kenya has a diverse population and is home some of the world's most spectacular animals including elephants, rhinos, big cats and many more.
I am raising money to enrol on a trip to East Africa, where around 51% of the population live in absolute poverty. I will be:
1.) Building Desks for school children who would otherwise be sat on the floor.
2.) Building classrooms to provide children with safe places to learn.
3.) Digging elephant watering holes, helping the elephants to survive the dry season.
4.) Making ethical deterrents to protect local crops, reducing elephant poaching and increasing crop production.
5.) Rhino sanctuary maintenance work as they are hugely endangered.
6.) Goat de-worming.
7.) Installing fresh water tanks at schools and villages.
I will be doing this with the charity Camps Internationals who are currently working on 103 initiatives worldwide to support rural communities, protects wildlife and preserve fragile ecosystems. To learn more about camps internationals you can visit their sites: facebook.com/campsintexpeditions instagram.com/campsint
To raise this money my friend, Hannah Williams, and I are going to walk the West Highland Way within 5 days. The 100 mile walk starts at Milngavie (Glasgow) and finishes at Fort William. The West Highland Way is a challenging walk over multiple terrains from mountains and lochs, to moorlands and farmlands. Any donations would be greatly appreciated as the total amount need for this Kenya trip is just under £4000. This money goes to camps international, which will allow me to get to Kenya and to allow the team to buy materials to help our work, it will also go to the communities.
