This summer I will be volunteering for 10 weeks on a development programme in Tanzania. This is part of International Citizen Service (ICS), which brings young people together to fight poverty and make a difference where it is needed most. I'll be working alongside volunteers from Tanzania, on a Water, Hygiene and Sanitation (WASH) Project. ICS works with communities that have specifically requested their help. It also aims to inspire young people in the UK and overseas to become active citizens who are passionate about long term community development. In order to participate in this project I need to raise £800. The money raised will go towards supporting the work of Raleigh Iternational and their ICS partner organisations, enabling ICS to continue sending youth volunteers to the developing world to make a lasting difference in disadvantaged communities. Any contribution will make a real difference to the lives of people in developing countries, so please dig deep! Thanks for your support!

Raleigh International is a sustainable development charity that challenges and inspires volunteers from around the world to work with communities in poverty. Raleigh International wants to bring access to safe water and sanitation, protect vulnerable environments and build resilient communities in developing countries.
The charity focuses on the advancement of education and global citizenship, the relief of those in need by reason of disadvantage and the improvement of environmental protection and sustainable community development.
The organisation operates in partnership with communities, non-governmental organisations and governments in Borneo, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, India and Tanzania.
The Raleigh International charity runs sustainability projects in order to create a positive impact in the communities, increase the leadership, teamwork and employability skills of their volunteers.
Working along communities, the organisation’s work is delivered by young people; partners and volunteers form a great range of backgrounds, nationalities and life stages.
Since 1984, Raleigh volunteers have become a global community of more than 36,000 people devoted to building a sustainable future. The charity offers volunteer programmes for people driven by the desire to support worthwhile development work. Raleigh's vision is to create a team of inspired young people committed to working together to build and maintain strong and sustainable communities across the world. Anyone from age 17 can apply to a Raleigh volunteer program.

Is there any cost to the challenger or to the cause?
No, GoRaise is completely free to use for challengers and causes. The only cost is to the retailer
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Will we end up paying more for goods and services?
No, you are not charged anything extra. You buy directly from supplier websites accessed via GoRaise so you pay the same as anyone else. In fact – our users are able to take advantage of many exclusive offers and promotions so you will often find a better deal with suppliers through GoRaise. If you have a preferred supplier not currently listed on GoRaise.co.uk, please let us know and we will help them sign up.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Which causes can we raise money for?
You can support any good cause, from small community groups, national charities or your own company foundations. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added very easily for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, company foundations, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
