Caitlin Kickham Fundraising for Malawi
Kent
 
My name is Caitlin Kickham, I am sixteen years old and I go to Tonbridge Grammar School. I am currently fundraising towards a charity trip to Malawi next summer where we will be helping to improve the lives of the people living in the community.
Caitlin Kickham

Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world, with one in eight children dying before they reach the age of five. Seven out of 10 child deaths in Malawi are due to preventable causes such as malaria, diarrhoea, pneumonia and malnutrition. Malaria and pneumonia alone account for nearly half of those deaths.
We will be working with a charity called Joshua Orphan and Community Care which is based in Blantyre and helps work to improve the lives of thousands of children in Malawi. Each of the communities Joshua works with suffers significant poverty, high rates of HIV/AIDS and malaria, a lack of clean, piped water and electricity and also very few health and education facilities.
Whilst in Malawi, we will be staying within the community and living in the same conditions as the villagers. We will have no electricity or running water and we will be eating and helping to prepare meals cooked by the locals. Whilst there we will be helping them to extend their local school which currently only has two classrooms.
In order to go on this trip I have to raise a minimum of three thousand pounds. Although this will be challenging if I work hard I think I will accomplish this. In the last few months I have been doing a lot of fundraising, from selling cakes and cookies at school to making and selling tie dye tops. I would greatly appreciate any donations, and if you are interesting in buying any of my products I have a face book page called ‘Ckclothing’ (link at bottom) and I will also be attending the Edenbridge Christmas Spectacular that is taking place on 30th December 2013 where I will also be selling lots of Christmas gifts.

The main reason why I would like to be involved in this major school event is because I want to be part of a team that can really make a difference to those less fortunate. This is an extraordinary school trip that is likely to be a life changing event. It is a major opportunity for all of us to broaden our horizons, experience something entirely different, and help to improve lives. It will give us all a tremendous insight into a different culture and way of life. The lack of basic amenities such as electricity and running water will be a real eye-opener for us all and will make us realise how lucky we are. It will feel good knowing that we have made a small, but hopefully meaningful contribution to improving the day-to-day life of those less fortunate.
