No. 53 Please support our exciting Crowd funding to teach Inga alley cropping at six Cameroon schools.
By Tiiu-Imbi Miller | Newsletter No. 53 June 2014

Two of our Cameroon partners, Atanga Wilson and Gaston Bityo have made a good start at four of the schools, and are waiting for money from this crowd funding to carry on after the holidays. They want to plant more Inga at all the schools, and tie that in with environmental education. They also want to set up environmental clubs in the schools that don’t yet have them.

The fund raising finishes at 2 pm on Thursday 10th July, and if we haven’t reached our goal of £2000 by then we get nothing, and of course the pledgers don’t pay.

We offer interesting and attractive rewards for the pledges, (assuming we reach our goal).  Check them out at

We have made a really good start, and are very thankful to all who have pledged, and all who are promoting us by Facebook, word of mouth, Twitter and any other means. If you haven’t done so yet, please make a pledge if you can, and tell other people about it too.

P.S. What is crowd funding?

Crowd funding is a way of raising money by getting small donations from many people. We decide how much we want to raise, explain what it is for, and set a date by which we have to have raised it. People make pledges of how much they will donate. We offer rewards according to the size of pledge. If the pledges add up to the amount we wanted to raise, the money is collected from the pledgers and paid to us. If we fail to reach the target no money is collected, we get nothing, and of course we don’t supply the rewards either.
