Weʼve raised £15 to Roberts VSO ICS Page
- St Austell, United Kingdom
- Funded on Monday, 1st January 2018
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.
I have been granted an incredible opportunity to make a real difference by working with VSO for 12 weeks in a country yet to be decided.
VSO ICS is designed to bring about lasting change for poor communities and as a volunteer I will get the opportunity to contribute directly to this change.
I will be teaming up with other UK volunteers to tackle some of the problems facing local communities. The 12 week project focuses on the issues that plague 3rd world countries such as Kenya & Malawi just to name a few.
VSO is the worlds leading independent international development organisation that works through volunteers to fight poverty in developing countries. VSO's high impact approach involves bringing people together to share skills, build capabilities, promote international understanding and action and change lives to make the world a fairer place for all.
VSO ICS is a once in a lifetime volunteering opportunity backed by the UK Government. The programme has been fully funded by DFID (Department for International Development) who run the International Citizen Service (http://www.ics-uk.org.uk/about/). However, as part of my participation I am required to fundraise a minimum of £800 prior to my departure in January. Therefore the money raised will enable as many young people as possible to volunteer on projects in the developing world and help fight poverty.
So amid my fundraising, a donation no matter how small or large would be greatly accepted and will be making a real difference.
Thank you for your support, I will keep you updated.
