H, thanks for checking out my fundraising page!
I know that Covid has been tough for many of us, but there have been some good things to come from it too.
I have been touched by the acts of kindness shown within communities and across the world. Those acts have inspired me to reach out to others in different ways, including this one small act of helping to rebuild a school in Lombok.
I'd love you to help me help others create a place for young people to build an exciting future.
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 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.
Together we’ll be building one of the first earthquake resistant schools in Lombok made with re-cycled plastic bricks. Yes that’s right, schools that will last longer than conventional schools, will help clean up the environment and create jobs too. How cool is that? It's only the second project in the world to do this.
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 [https://theaokc.giv.sh/c0cb].
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 ourselves.
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!
