Mia's Tanzanian fundraising

My lovely thoughtful daughter Mia, 14, despite her constant anxieties, has decided that she would like to go and help the children in Tanzania who are struggling below the poverty line.  They do not attend school and have no access to clean drinking water; with most of their families living on less than $1 per day.  Her work will involve helping to build the school and installing water systems plus helping farmers to look after their livestock.  It is a hard job for one so young, but she is determined to do it and she makes me so proud.  I have to hold my hat off to her because I know it won't be easy.
To do this, we need to raise £4000 by May 2020 and we are both willing to put the hard work in to raise the full amount.  We will be taking on any amount of challenges and extra work thrown at us,  to enable her to have this opportunity to help others less fortunate than herself.
I really hope that you can see how determined she is and can help by supporting us with whatever amount you can afford to donate.
We shall regularly update you with our challenges and successes (and failures) along the way and hope you will join with us in celebrating her determination to make this a reality.
Thank you so much for your support, it is very much appreciated.
