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.
In July and August of 2017, I will be undertaking a once-in-a-lifetime charity project in Kenya for the Gathimba Edwards foundation. I am very keen to do all that I can to help increase the quality of life for others, especially those living below the poverty line in countries such as Kenya.
The work carried out by Gathimba Edwards is wonderful. Their invaluable projects have helped hundreds of Kenyan children to achieve what I believe is a fundamental right: access to a safe environment that will allow them to develop into adulthood. This includes the provision of food, education and security from harm.
You may ask why I have chosen to volunteer in Kenya. Whilst inequality and poverty is rife throughout much of the world, these problems are particularly acute in Kenya. Following recent insecurity in Somali and South Sudan, Kenya is facing humanitarian challenges. In a country where over 20 million live below the poverty line (ie.less tan $1.25 per day), this is particularly concerning. Thus, it is even more important to offer aid to the people of Kenya. I am looking forward to doing my part to achieve this.
During my project in Kenya, the work that I will do will include the purchasing and delivering of provisions to children supported by Gathimba Edwards, in addition to meeting with the children and so helping with their education. Through this work, I hope to help extend the charity's outreach to underprivileged children in Kenya.
This project requires me to raise as much money as possible, so that my support can achieve the utmost impact in Kenya.
Therefore i will be extremely grateful for any donations towards my project.
your donation can help in so many ways, for example:
- A donation of £10 will provide the primary school tuition fees of a one child in Kenya for a whole year.
- A donation of £20 will
I will also be running in the Great Manchester 10k to fundraise for and to raise awareness of Gathimba Edwards.
