About this cause

About our cause

My name is Ashley May I am a 14 year old student at Blatchington Mill school. I am fundraising so I can go abroad and work to help educate children in poverty, to do this I need to raise £2195.00 by the 4th of May 2018. But I need to raise £700 by the end of July 2017 to secure my place. "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" Nelson Mandela said these true words which resonate with me and the charities I am fundraising for. It is through education that people can develop and alleviate themselves from poverty and is a sustainable method of ensuring that we create a more equal world. When I was younger I had DDH and so missed 2 years of my schooling due to having extensive surgery. This could have disadvantaged me hugely, but I made sure that I worked hard to catch up with my studies and have always had the drive to ensure that I reach my goals. I am now top of my class in all my subjects and seen as a Gifted student. I was lucky, I had a supportive family and a supportive school to help me to achieve this. For this reason I feel personally motivated to ensure that other children in less fortunate situations are still given access to education and the help that I was. I have a personal connection in struggles with education and want to give back and share what I have learned, that you can do anything you set your mind to with a bit of drive and a good education. If I achieve my fundraising target I will go to Zanzibar in June 2018 for 16 days. Whilst there I will work with a local primary school teaching core subjects and also helping with the construction of a new school building. Through doing this project I will become a globally active citizen, benefiting both the community in Zanzibar and my own back home in Brighton. I am being supported in my fundraising by INTO Giving, a local Brighton based education charity. They have had a focus on ensuring access to education for refugees and girls throughout the last year and they have pledged to continue this throughout 2017 - By channeling my fundraising donations through them they will match every penny raised and use it to support their supporting projects across the world. This means that not only will you be helping the children of Zanzibar by sponsoring the African Adventures project, you will also be helping INTO Giving.and their work too. Doubling your donation!!! I will be writing blogs and uploading photos of my fundraising journey and will be happy to continue this on my return home. Please help me reach my goal of doing this volunteer work, whilst also helping 2 charities and hundreds of disadvantaged children in the process. Any amount will help! Please also share the link to my fundraising page so other people can give their support. Much Love Ashley May
