Weʼre raising £1,500 to help raise money for Sam's educational expedition to the Indian Himalaya's in 2019, organised by World Challenge.
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.
Through a company called World Challenge, Sam has signed up for a 2 year programme to take part in an educational expedition to the Indian Himalaya's in 2019. After climbing up to 4000 meters during a 14 day trek the team will spend time working on a community project. The community project will involve working alongside the local people, renovating school facilities and spending time teaching English to local children. This opportunity is a challenging expedition that will significantly benefit the local community and will teach Sam valuable life skills such as leadership, communication and team work.
The team have the task of raising £3000 each through fundraising to cover all their costs for the expedition. In order to raise the funds, Sam has organised events with his team, as well as attending car boot sales at the weekends and offering his neighbours an odd job service.
Any donations you are able to make, big or small, will go direct to Sam's fundraising account, and help him on his way to an adventure where he can make a difference.
