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.
Welcome to my second just giving page as multiple people informed me that they forgot to donate in time. I had set myself a challenge for 2017, to climb up the world’s most highest free-standing mountain – Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania. This stands at 5,895m (19,341 feet). And other mini treks in the UK too such as Box Hill, Snowdonia, Ben Nevis and many more. I have achieved this as seen in the picture and it was the best moment in my life to be at the highest point in Africa on 08/09/2017 at 15:23 hours.
Oshwal Association of the UK (OAUK) is a registered charity (charity no. 267037), that celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2018. To mark this special year, OAUK will be organising a medical camp in Jamnagar, India. The camp will provide much needed aid to the disabled and those with special needs. It will cater for medical needs such as sight, dental and health, and provide items such as artificial foot and hand aids, crutches, wheel chairs and hearing aids to name a few.
Oshwal Youth are leading the cause by raising funds to support the event via organising a fund raising trek to Kilimanjaro. Our collective trekkers group target is £50,000, with a wider aim of raising c£150k+ of funds to host this medical camp. I have set myself an individual target of £1k. As I have already raised over £500 on my first donation page, I have set the target on this page to £500.
I paid for the costs of the trek from my personal funds, so the generous donations you make will go towards the charity and this amazing cause.
On a final note, I just wanted to say a massive thanks to you all in advance for all your kind support and donations, every donation will be hugely appreciated and will really improve the lives of many underprivileged people.
Thanks again. Vimal
