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.
My name is Sam Ashley, a 15 year old boy at Aylesbury Grammar school. I volunteered to go on an exchange with my school two years ago to help Malosa school and some of the neighbooring ones aswell, the AGS Malawi inititive. I have to raise money so we can support the schools with some resources. As you know I have already raised alot of money trying to raise money for the cause and I'm trying to push for the last £300 .To do this I will be partaking on a walk along the Aylesbury ring passing through local villages and towns such as Waddesdon, Wendover and Dinton, making and taking friends along the way. The walk is 50km long and I will aim to complete it within a day.
The Malawi Initiative aims to help support development in a number of ways:
- By supporting medical improvements through the provision of equipment, such as surgical beds, glasses and mosquito nets.
-The initiative also aims to help improve female empowerment by providing computer and sewing equipment to improve marketable skills.
-However the main aim is to help foster educational improvements by providing teaching resources, beds desks, power provision, satellite internet connection and through the building of classrooms at various schools.
The relationship between Aylesbury Grammar School and Malosa Secondary School in the Zomba area of Malawi has continued for over 25 years, and has run an exchange since 2007, with 6 programmes completed so far. Part of the fundraising completes the second half of the programme, which involves paying for a number of Malosa students and two teachers to learn about UK culture, and education, which helps facilitate cultural links and educational development. The fundraising money is used to solely to bring students from Malosa to UK (about 20% of the fundraising total) and the remainder on development projects.
By donating you will help improve the lives of these incredibly poor children and able them to get a proper education so they can have a proper career.
Thankyou to all family and friends who have supported me in my fundraising efforts so far, it is really appreciated.
