Weʼre raising £3,000 to fund a trip to Nepal in 2019 in order to gain life experience and a broader knowledge of different cultures.

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 Tom and I have recently signed up to a trip to Nepal in 2019 with help from my school who are joining up with a charity group called Global Action.
The reason I signed up for this trip was because I hoped it would give me perspective and allow me to rediscover how great my life and the people I spend it with are. It also gives me a unique opportunity to discover other peoples' culture and lives and, more importantly, to lend a hand to help their community.
Some of the projects that I may have the chance to help with include:
• installing a piped drinking water system
• building/renovating a school classroom
• educating local children
I would be very grateful for any donations as I'm not doing very well on that front as of yet, though I am planning to run a 10 kilometer marathon in the near future to raise funds.

About the fundraiser
I feel that there are many struggles people face across the world but it's hard to do any justice to or empathise with these struggles and the people who face them when I haven't experienced any myself. This is why I want to go to Nepal, to help with other peoples' struggles.
