Weʼre raising £1,400 to help impoverished rural communities from Nicaragua grow and develop through Warwick Business Brigade 2018
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.
Everyone deserves an equal chance to grow and develop. That is why I will volunteer with 2018 Warwick Business Brigade, part of Global Brigades, and I will travel to Nicaragua for 7 days to contribute to the development and growth of impoverished rural communities.
How exactly are we going to help those communities?
Several Brigades, teams of volunteers, travel to the same place in order to provide a sustainable and well-rounded project.
Business Brigades volunteers empower rural communities without access to financial services and business guidance by providing micro-enterprise counseling, financial planning assistance, and strategic investment. During the brigade, volunteers divide into small groups to conduct client visits in which they get to know the client and assess each client’s level of financial competency, entrepreneurial aspirations, and/or business knowledge. Volunteers then provide educational and capacity building assistance in the form of workshops. Topics range from personal finance to basic accounting and business planning.
Together with the Engineering Brigade, which helps the community gain access to clean water and resources, Human Rights Brigade, which helps the people from the community deal with legal problems, and also with the Medical team, which helps the community stay healthy, we all unite for a common goal: healing the world by helping people in need.

About the fundraiser
I am studying Economics at the University of Warwick, hoping to get a multi-sided approach in order to gain a global view of any world matter. However, I have a strong desire to give back to the community in order to contribute to a better world.
