My story

[p][br][/p][p]** Update ** I’ve increased my target to £3000, thank you all so much for your support!! 6 days to go...[/p][p]Hey, thanks for reading my story. I'd just like to point out that this is a completely self funded trip and 100% of your kind donations will go straight to the project. [/p][p]Jane Keogh is part of a community called the Zambian Connection and I have decided to join her on an adventure, something out of my comfort zone and out of my control.[/p][p]I want to help children of the local school in Zambia. The help and support we can provide is phenomenal, it’s a small price for us which has a massive impact for those in need. [/p][p][b][u]So what’s my Challenge you’re wondering?[/u][/b][/p][p]A small group of 9 are flying out to Zambia in July 2018 (own expenses paid, no part of the fundraising will go towards the cost of the trip) to embark on a 5 day canoe journey down the Croc and Hippo infested waters of the River Zambezi. We will be wild camping next to the river at one with nature, mainly mozzies & crocs!!! [/p][p]We will also be heading to the local school where your money will be helping the children I actually meet. [/p][p][b][u]How your money will help?[/u][/b][/p][p]Your kind donations will help pay for school fees from the ages of 15-18 (this is not free in Zambia) for 1 child for 3 whole years! As a group we want to raise over £10,000 to make a real impact on the lives of the people living in Zambia. [/p][p]Your donations will help real children I will be meeting in July and helping a great cause, as it will better education which them leads to stronger jobs and wealth and with that comes bigger better communities and knowledge about animal conservation and the Country moving forward. [/p][p][b][u]And Finally….[/u][/b][/p][p]Any donation you wish to make will make a huge impact on a child's life and will be gratefully received. If you would like to learn more about the project please feel free to ask. [/p][p]www.thezambianconnection.com[/p][p]www.tusk.com[/p]
