Weʼre raising £10,000 to Provide a safe, enjoyable, learning Holiday for under-privileged young people.

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.
Based out of South Wales
Working together with friends and family, we hope to provide a cost-free, safe, friendly and happy place away from home for under-privileged or low income children/teens that need a break from their everyday lives in some cases, very stressful lives. The idea is that the youngsters will meet others similar to their age and circumstances and strike up new friendships and support groups that will work alongside one another and gain valuable experience and knowledge of imperative life skills for independent living.
It'll be a fun, creative and active learning-holiday. In a world of technological advancements, our idea is to re-engage British youth with nature and common sense work-ethics and practices while they enjoy a short French break.
The essential plan is to provide a free holiday to the lush French countryside. Where participants will Live and Learn in groups of 4 to 6, the basics of essential life skills that modern schools don't provide. All guests will receive comfortable accommodation, a healthy & varied diet as well as an active and creatively inspiring schedule including:
-Animal-Care, Cooking, D.I.Y, Farming, Gardening, Handy-work...and more
The Possibilities are Endless
From 3-day weekends to 2 week holidays, variety is the key. The time spent will become priceless experience that will last a lifetime.
Please help us realise a dream that not only benefits those we help directly but also possible future generations through the power of knowledge. Thanking you in advance for any support you may ofter, no matter how little! 🙂

About the fundraiser
Hi there, I'm fund raising to buy a cheap run down property in France with a bit of land. My aim is to rennovate it to a decent standard in order to use as a respite home during school holidays for underprivileged teenagers to teach independent living.
