We're The Seed, Africa and we're raising £4,200 to help a girl in Swaziland fulfill her dream of becoming a doctor!

The end & the beginning

It always seems impossible until it is done - Nelson Mandela

Thanks to you – each & every one of you – at lunchtime yesterday WE HIT OUR TARGET!

We are both humbled beyond words... You are making Lelo's dreams come true!

Lelo and Georgie celebrating - The Seed crowdfunding

We may have come to the end of our mission, but this is just the beginning of a new chapter in Lelo's life. I've seen how much she has flourished at boarding school so far & I can't wait to see what transformation 2015 brings.

This is also the beginning of a new opportunity – to secure Lelo's future further. There's two more days of the campaign remaining & any further funds we can raise in that time will give us a great headstart towards keeping Lelo at school in 2016 too.

We've set a stretch target of £8,500, which would be enough to pay Lelo's school fees both this year and next (after which she'll be just one year from graduation! Hooray!)

Unlike the original target, we're guaranteed to receive any further funds raised :-) We're not expecting to reach £8,500 at this point (although anything's possible!)

However, every single pound we do raise will move Lelo one step closer to seeing her dreams become reality!

Together, we can plant a seed to change the world :-)

With sincere thanks, Georgina-Kate
