Thanks for checking out my fundraising page.
I'm so excited to be part of this wonderful oroject to raise funds to build a school in Lombok , a small island east of Bali. It feels like the perfect opportunity for me to leave a legacy that will benefit children and a community for years to come. A way to make a positive contribution to the world that will last even when I'm no longer here.
I would be so grateful of your support in helping us achieve our goal.
Why are we building a school in Lombok?
Imagine how your life or the lives of your children would be different today if you never went to school...
In 2018, more than 500 people were killed, thousands of families where left homeless and over 400 schools were destroyed when a series of earthquakes struck the Indonesian island of Lombok.
Since then, Classroom of Hope (our main charity partner) has been helping Lombok recover by building new schools. But thousands of children are still out of school because there’s been little overseas aide. There is also a huge problem with rubbish in Indonesia.
I’m particularly excited to be this project tackles both problems: the lack of child-friendly schools and too much rubbish.
Together we’ll be building one of the first earthquake resistant schools in Lombok made with re-cycled plastic bricks. Schools that will last longer than conventional schools, will help clean up the environment and create jobs too.
How much does the school cost?
Approximately £25,000 will build a three-classroom school made of re-cycled plastic bricks, although we’d love to raise more to build a bigger school or provide more resources. You can see how well we’re doing as a team HERE.
What happens to the money I donate?
All funds raised through this fundraising campaign (less exchange rates and bank charges) will go directly towards building the school Lombok and other projects run by Classroom of Hope. Each of us will be funding the cost of our trip to Lombok and Bali ourselves. Find out more about Classroom of Hope HERE.
Please donate whatever feels right, to help us rebuild a school, community and island devastated by earthquakes and neglected by the world.
Donations are in pound sterling. If you live outside the UK, £10 = US$13 = €11 (approximate values as at February 2020).
Thanks for your support, it means a lot!
