    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

    I am volunteering three weeks this summer in Thailand for an organisation called Original Volunteers. It's an award winning programme, which involves helping children improve their English in different schools on the West Coast of Thailand.

    This programme was created in 2005 by a retired British school teacher, after the coastal region was devastated by a Tsunami wave in 2004 which crashed inland destroying homes and killing thousands. The biggest consequence was the effect on the local economy. Thus, this programme will really make a difference in the life of the local population, as it aims to provide the children with an alternative career opportunity in higher education or the recovering tourist industry. Many of the children come from very poor families who work in agriculture and may be working for as little as £1 a day. Without good English these children cannot access higher education and university without passing the national examinations in English.

    The money from this page would go towards my travel, accommodation and resources. If you have any question about the programme, don't hesitate to contact me. For more information, here is the link of the programme: https://www.originalvolunteers.co.uk/destinations/asia/thailand.html

    Any contribution would be greatly appreciated!
