I have just signed up to do a teaching project in Tanzania for a month and I need your help! I need to fundraise around 2000 - 2500GBP to cover my project fees and flights and I am looking for some fundraising ideas. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Have you thought about approaching local schools and universities in your area? Sometimes a local school will help you fundraise for the teaching project in return for you enriching the school program by doing things such as:

- talks on Tanzania and the project you are doing
- keeping on online blog for the kids/teachers to read
- presenting photos and tales to the kids upon your return
- telling the people in Tanzania all about the local school supporting you
- Assisting in setting up a Pen-Pal program between the schools

Good luck with the fundraising - it's sounds like a wonderful project you are working on!

My pleasure! If you're going to keep a blog about the trip here on TP, I'd love to hear all about it. :)
