Weʼre raising £3,000 to Build a school and teachers house for the Vezo people of madagascar
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I visited this tiny community on the south west coast of Madagascar last year. The Vezo people are subsistence fishermen .
I filmed with them for a week. The most generous, kind, giving people i have visisted .
Their school hut had blown down the previous year and the teacher left.
The children were so gentle and eager to learn.
the cost of a new school house and teachers house was so little , that i felt we had to try .and help
In our first push we amazingly raised enough money for the school, which will soon start to be built. Now we are looking to build the teachers hut and their wages for the first three years .
