My name is Haley Dahl and I have started this crowdfunding platform to assist Headman Mutumbashi Andrew Baldry. Andrew has undertaken a great initiative to uplift a very poor community in Zambia. Initially, he wants to help them with their basic needs such as food and clothing and then he wants to teach them new skills and provide them with equipment for sustainable fishing.
I was inspired to assist Andrew Baldry when I saw an orphan from this community in Zambia whose only possession was a bucket. Andrew has taken on a massive task and I want to help him assist this community. I have visited the community and I stayed in a lodge on the Kafue River in Zambia in close proximity to the community. I have met several people in the community. This is a very noble and honorable project.
There is no time frame. We need to get funds to Andrew as soon as possible so that he can assist those people who are in dire straits and then costs will be ongoing until the fishermen have been properly equipped.
Initially, we want to buy clothes and shoes for the community and provide rudimentary shelter alongside the river. We will provide basic food requirements and then provide them with equipment so that they can fish for the community and fish to sell in order to become self-sufficient. The fishing skills are important so that the river is not over utilised.
Immediate comfort with shoes and clothes. Rudimentary shelter alongside the river, food for the members of the community. The necessary equipment and skills so that the fishermen can provide food for themselves and fish to sell to market and nearby city.
The funds will be used to provide food, shelter, clothing and shoes to the poorest people in the Royal Kafue Community. The funds will also be spent on providing equipment to these people so that they be taught new skills in order to become self-sufficient. These skills include how to fish in the river in a sustainable manner and how to sell their fish to the people who are interested in purchasing the fish in the nearby town.
*Funds raised will be transferred directly to the Kaindu community trust from where it will be managed.*
