Hi! Thanks a lot for taking the time to look at my profile.

I am an 18 year old Student from Manchester, England, and this summer I have been given the opportunity to embark on a volunteering programme in Ghana, courtesy of International Service. 

This programme is subsidised by the UK government and is a massive privelige to have been accepted onto! However, in order for me to be able to achieve my dream, I have been told that I must fundraise £1500(Around €2500)!

Unfortunately, being a student, this is an immense amount of money for me to raise, and I have set up this page because I am desperate to achieve my dreams of going to aid in the sustainable development of a world far more in need than my own. As a college student, I intend to go to university in September 2015 to study International Development. The reason I have delayed my application is purely because before studying, I would love to get a taste for International Development myself!

The volunteering placement is for 10 weeks starting on the 29th of September, and my fundraising target of £1500 must be raised 2 weeks before this otherwise I cannot go! Whilst there, I will contribute to many tasks, and help many people. This would likely include helping those with disabilities to gain equality. The main aim of the program is to create a just society with equal opportunities for all and respect for diversity.

I would be immensely grateful to anybody who would be willing to help me achieve this target, no donation would be too small, as every single penny will take me a step closer to realising my target and, moreso, pursuing my dream of being immersed in a new culture where I can truly make a difference and leave a positive mark!

Thank you again for your time!

Matt

Why contribute to a cause you know nothing about, and will never hear of again?
If you contribute anything to my cause, I will ensure that you will understand the true difference you have made!
I will try my best to give you updates on my progress before I depart on the programme, and during the program I will make sure you can see exactly what I'm doing and how it is helping the community I am working in! I will send photos, text updates and maybe even videos to show you who I am working with and how it is helping their lives; after all, without you I wouldn't be helping their lives at all!
