I have been lucky enough to be chosen to go with 11 others to go to tanzania to help an istitute in the form of practical help in areas such as I.T, Water and construction.
i am really excited about the trip as i have down very very little travelling before. However with flights and stuff its going to cost each of us around £1500 and i am hoping/want to get this cost down through sponsorships or other fundraising ideas any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated thanks.
as a group we are going to be fundraising for some water pumps and other vital things they are in need of.but we are also allowed to get our own funds etc, my initial ideas are to write letters to large companies explaining tot hem what its about etc but i can imagine they get tonnes of letters asking fo rmoney! i thought if i get some tshirts made up with sponsors on to wear out there and wear for press shots etc? also maybe produce a calendar for 2009 with photos taken on the trip?
