My Name is Alex, I am 15 and I am trying to raise the money to go to South Africa, to learn about the culture, the wild life, the conservation and to help in the Zulu village school, teaching the children, organising sports events, carrying out maintenance on the schools and doing anything that needs doing. Many of the children we will get to work with are orphans who have come from villages where generations of their families have suffered from the effects of Aids. So far I have raffled my iPad, sold home made gifts on markets, got a t-shirt with local shop names on it made and run up the highstreet in a onsie! From this I have have managed to raise £500. I now need to raise the remaining £2500. I am grateful for any donation no matter how small it is. This trip really would be a dream come true for me.
