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.
This summer my friends and I partnered with Volunteering Solutions in order to help these kids in Arusha to get education and essential health care. For the past week I've been working at Faraja orphanage/school for kids who have lost their parents to diseases such as HIV or simply been found wondering around in markets and dumps.
These kids are 5-12 years old and all are truly amazing. They are willing to learn, however hardly getting that opportunity. I have an emotional breakdown every single day knowing that my effort is simply not enough to help them all. It is the worst feeling on earth seeing these kids struggling, therefore I decided to try raise some funds for one of the most essential parts of these kids daily life - drinking water.
The system that initially had to be installed to clear the water from the toxic amount of fluoride in it, which highly affects the health of these kids (teeth, bones etc), wasn't finished because of the lack of funds raised by another Volunteer at the orphanage.
If anyone, would like to donate, that would be very appreciated. I believe that we all have to start from ourselves and that we can make a difference in the lives of these children together.
