In the past we have encouraged gap years students seeking experience at Mvumi to undertake some sponsored or fundraising activity to raise funds for Mvumi School Trust . We have found that our most successful volunteers are often those who have put considerable effort into their fundraising for the Trust prior to going to Mvumi. These volunteers seem to get more out of their experience at Mvumi and the Trust and School get more from them. With this in mind we do ask applicants to consider undertaking a sponsored event or other fundraising activity on behalf of the Trust.
“How much?“ you may ask. Some enterprising fundraisers have raised over ten thousand pounds. However a typical target for an individual gap year student is £2,000 and certainly not less than £1,000. In the space on the form please put what you are prepared to consider. It is not contractual and can be undertaken either before or after visiting Mvumi.
