Alison & Laura's Fast for Tanzania!

Organised for: Alison & Laura

Hello everyone & welcome to our money pot for Tanzania!

Alison and Laura are volunteering to work with youth entrepreneurs in Tanzania this July, to help them build sustainable businesses.  This project is in conjunction with Raleigh International Trust.


On Tuesday May 29th Alison and Laura will do a 24 hour fast in a bid to raise funds for this incredible cause! More details on the project below:


  • Tanzania’s rural population largely lives in poverty, experiences significant unemployment, and a large proportion of the total number of those unemployed are young people. 


  • One growing route out of poverty is through setting up their own business. In the past three years 590 Raleigh Entrepreneurs have set up businesses with seed funding direct from Raleigh. 


  • To continue upskilling these entrepreneurs to grow their very own micro-enterprise, a team of us will spend time working with 40 youth entrepreneurs in rural locations, who are now hungry to learn more about running a successful micro-enterprise. 


How can you help?

We will be paying for our own flights and vaccinations however we need to fundraise for:

  • Contribution to local entrepreneurs (the entrepreneurs will be able to take out loans with these funds, helping them to kickstart their businesses).  
  • Accommodation (we will live with host families in Tanzania)
  • Visas & Insurance


With just 1-click you can donate:

  • Give however much you want
  • All payments are 100% secure
  • Why It's easy & transparent!

Thank you!
