What is crowdfunding?

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.


Who are the LRTT?

The LRTT is a charity that was founded by 5 teachers who believed that every child deserves a great education. Since 2012, LRTT fellows have trained more than 3,750 teachers in 10 countries around the world. Today, fellows from around the world join their team and become educational mentors to teachers in limited resource contexts.

Why should you care?

Education can change a life, a community and, eventually, let's face it, it will change the world. The LRTT work relentlessly to ensure that children, on a global scale, are given access to better educational opportunities. They work in classrooms, in teaching training colleges, and in communities supporting local students and professionals. This work is transformative for all those involved.

What I need your help with?

This summer, I am hoping to be one of those LRTT fellows.

I am hoping to fundraise enough money to pay for my fellowship and the costs that come along with it. The fellowship will take place in August 2018, over a three week block. In this time, I will have the opportunity to work with two seperate teams of teachers in Laos, looking at curriculum planning and upskilling these professionals so that they can improve the provision in their own schools.

A Bit About LRTT Laos

Access to education in Laos is improving rapidly but the adult literacy rate is only 58% and only 60% students complete lower secondary.

Working alongside the Ministry for Education and the British Embassy you will be part of designing and facilitating a long-term training programme starting in 2018 that will support the country’s education system as they move towards their 2030 vision. We will work with two teacher training colleges and their surrounding schools to plan training that supports the government’s goals including a focus on 21st-century learning and English proficiency.

Events Updates

June 24th - 40k Bike Ride as part of Birmingham Triathlon.

On a hot summer's day (hopefully) in June, myself and two of my wonderful teacher friends will be taking part in an olympic length relay triathlon. This will involve a 1500m open water swim courtesy of Charlotte Langdon, and a 10k run to be smashed by Louise Wright. I will be pretending I am a pro-cyclist and attempting to complete a 40k bike ride.

    FUNDRAISING - BIRMINGHAM TRIATHLON So, after a wonderful Easter break, I now have my serious head back on. Myself and two wonderful teacher friends, Louise Wright and Charlotte Langdon, will be completing the Birmingham Traithlon in June as a relay team. I am completing the 40k bike ride. Training for this has begun in earnest and I already have sore legs! The LRTT is an amazing charity that help to educate children all over the world. Any donations you can offer in my quest to support them are received with huge amounts of gratitude.
