London Calling, Donors Choose and my Fundraising Project for an African Classroom

Through my contacts with Will of Journeys by Design I learned of the existence of the Trusts for African Schools based in Richmond, Surrey (UK).

I liked the fact that they stand for No expenses, No overheads, No administration fees and offer very practical examples of costs for various needs.
For example a daily hot meal for a child for a year can be supplied for $100.
This is what one calls breaking things into little pieces.

After reading the Trusts for African Schools brochure, I learned of the Bloggers Challenge offered by Donors Choose which allows sites big and small to raise funds for education.

I chose to start with an African School Project of 30 Desks and Chairs.

Cost is $700.

Let us see how long it takes us to get there.
