    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.


    For the past four years, Rainford Highs Sixth Form have traveled to Ghana in order to make incredible improvements to the society, such as:
    - Donating clothes
    - Building libraries (supplied with books)
    - Building schools 
    - Planting vegetable patches
    - Building beds
    - Helping women and children who were forced to leave their homes

    Our plan for next year is to do something that has never been done before. Not just by our school, but by anyone in Ghana. STEM learning is ‘working to achieve a world-leading education for all young people in science, technology, engineering and mathematics’, which I believe is vital to ensure that the young people in Africa can hope for a better future for themselves and their families. Building a STEM Center requires a lot of resources and we have been kind enough to receive many product donations from companies and we are also taking over all of our schools old technology.

    I am aiming to raise £1,600. This number pays for:
    A guide who will be with us 24 hours a day
    All project materials & equipment
    Unlimited safe drinking water
    Travel insurance

    We students are going with two teachers from our school who have ran the trip since it began, in 2013. As the school has been going for a number of consecutive years, we have very good relations with the locals of Ghana and the school has stayed in the same accommodation and used the same guide and transport systems since their first trip. I am hoping to be able to carry on the incredible legacy that past students have left behind and make a positive impact towards bettering the lives of the young people in Ghana and do something that has never been attempted before. I hope that you are inspired enough to help me along my journey.
