In addition to your program fee, you will be required to raise $1,700 (Nurses in Action) or $500 (Global Adventurer's Program), which will go towards World Youth International and our global projects, to ensure we can continue working with communities around the world.
It may seem daunting at first, but you'll be surprised how easy it is once you get going and how eager your friends and family are to support you!
The funds you raise will make a real impact to the community you work with in Kenya and Nepal, and to other communities around the world. By raising the additional funds you can help to create change by supporting projects such as:
Mama Ann's Odede Community Health Centre in Kenya
The Odede Health Centre is a World Youth International initiative that brings crucial healthcare services to thousands of people living in extreme poverty every year. It provides maternal and infant health care, HIV testing and support, and many other services. Hundreds of women give birth safely at the Health Centre each year, and community outreach programs provide education and basic medical services for schools and villages around Odede.
The World Youth International School, Nepal
The adult literacy rate in Nepal stands at just 59% of people over the age of 15. WYI has been fighting to change this since 1999 when the World Youth International School was opened. The school was built with the help of many volunteers and the Gokarna community.
Sapana Dreaming Children's Home, Nepal
The Sapana Dreaming Children’s Home was built to provide a place for underprivleged children who did not have access to basic rights such as education and a safe home. The Home gives 50 children the opportunity to be cared for and sponsors them to attend the WYI school. Many of the children are the victims of the 2015 earthquake, which killed more than 9,000 people. Many of these children lost their families and homes.
How to fundraise
There are many ways you can raise your target! You could host a trivia night, movie night, tea party or fundraising dinner, arrange a garage sale or even hold a sausage sizzle at a local business or sports club. Once you have paid your deposit of $550, WYI will provide you with a link to your own online fundraising page which you can share with your family, friends, acquaintances and colleagues via social media. And don't forget, we are here to help! We can provide you with advice and support to help you reach your target.
"I am thrilled at how well my fundraising is going so far. The page is great and so easy to set up. I was so nervous about it all but was pleasantly surprised. Also, people are loving the information provided surrounding fundraising and are very impressed with WYI and what is achieved." Leanne, Nurses in Action volunteer
