Our Charity
I will be competing in the Mongol Rally in association with The Adventurists to raise money for Children's Charities and Schools in Indonesia. Wealden Fine Furniture will appreciate any small donations that you are able to give.

Having spent the past 9 years developing my business relationships in Indonesia, it was impossible not to see the difference in lifestyle and opportunities open to much of the population. Indonesia is a vast archipelago of islands and stretches from the bottom of Thailand to the northern tip of Australia.

As a developing country with a population of around 200 million, the demand for jobs is very competitive and without a basic education, the chances of young kids finding any form of employment is very low. To date, there is no social security offered by the government and as a result, there are thousands of street children living under bridges and in appalling conditions.

We use many small suppliers in the production of our furniture and over the years, as we have expanded, I have seen their children get good education and a better start in life from the money we have invested into their communities.

On my last trip to Indonesia, I was with a friend picking up her daughter from a local school in Semarang, Java and got into conversation with one of the teachers about the local street children. The school itself supports a class of about 20 street children but has no formal policy of funding for these children. They are uniformed, fed and educated from funds donated by parents of the children attending the school.

As a direct result of this meeting, I have decided to collect for a fund that will directly support the education of 4 to 9 year old children so they can have head start in life. The money that is raised will buy; uniforms, books, stationary, food, milk, bicycles for the parents to get their children into school and towards the basic school fees. The cost to educate 1 child is about £90 / year.

In 2009 i embarked on a 10,000 mile drive from London to Mongolia, nearly halfway round the world, to raise money for this charity and for the Mongol Rally charities.
