    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.

    Story

    The Tuareg village of Tinzibitane Elabdach, in the desert 45km west of Timbuktu, Mali, is seeking to revive after bad years of drought, insecurity and war (in 2012-14). They wish to start a school for their children.

    The villagers and refugees from their clan have already raised some start money amongst themselves (the Tuareg have been desert traders for centuries), and I wish to help them by raising the rest.

    This plan to start the school has already drawn refugees back to the village from abroad - so this isn't just about a school, it's about a village and a people, and their wish to meet the modern world without going too far. Full details about all this are here (including a cost breakdown): The Tuareg Village of Tinzibitane Elabdach, Mali.

    I welcome you to join this exciting nomad development project by tossing a fiver or more into the pot and helping us get this school on its feet. Bless you and thank you - that's not just from me, but also from the chief and people of the Tinzibitane, who are hoping and praying that their call will be heard. It means such a lot to them.

    I'm a humanitarian, author, historian and counsellor living on an organic farm in West Cornwall. I've worked with refugees, particularly in Palestine, and similar issues, all my adult life, and now I'm working with the Tuareg. I feel it's what I'm here for, really.
