We're raising money to enable a Fellow with limited financial resources to participate in the Year Here programme. The money will be raised and distributed through CIVA, and all proceeds will go to a Year Here Fellow.
Putting a year aside to do to Year Here is a big sacrifice for anyone, but if you have no savings or parental support taking part can be near impossible. We want to work with people who have the most potential for social impact, regardless of their background or financial circumstances, and we definitely don't want to contribute social inequality.
Over the past few years, we've been able to provide bursaries through generous contributions from philanthropists. We want to expand the number of bursaries we can offer to enable more people get started as social entrepreneurs, and to use their creativity and energy to help make a better world.
We think that crowdfunding is a good start, which is why we are running Hackney. We're asking for your support to meet our target of £5,000. This will enable one Fellow to participate in our ten-month programme, delivering hundreds of hours of voluntary work, with the potential to go on to change the lives of thousands of people. Please help us to help them change the world!
This year's squad of runners includes: Jack Graham, Mike Simpson, Anna Hyde, Alice Harvey, Emma Mowat, Ruba Huleihel, Sarah Johnson, Benoit Grogan-Avignon, Sagar Gupta, Josh Babarinde, Frankie Bennett, Luke Davis.
