Been back home for a week and still thinking of Africa

I just want to take time to say thank you again for donating and making this trip to Africa a reality for me. I've been home for a week and have See More

EVENT DATE Apr 14, 2016

THE STORY:

The trip total cost is $4,453 but I felt like it was kind of ridiculous to ask for the whole thing lol. Anything you can do to help, I would really appreciate it! I'm a Masters Communication student focusing on Health Communication. I know it's cheesy, but I want to help people, and think that my reach in health communication can be meaningful. I have the amazing opportunity to go to Uganda to study the effects of alcoholism on risky behavior in an at-risk population. In Uganda, there's a huge moonshine (basically a homemade alcohol) problem, and children are introduced to it really young, even as young as infants. Health Communication comes into play because what are the messages being disseminated and how do they make this behavior seem okay? I want to explore and hopefully learn how to change the messaging to positively impact the population. I have a 3.90 so far in my program, and by the time this trip comes in May, I will be more than half way done with this Masters. This is such a cool and unique once-in-a-lifetime type of opportunity and I would love it if you could help me get there! As a newly-wed in school (whose husband is also in school and also trying to go to Uganda with me in May) the funds are tight. I would love it, if we could go and experience this together. Thank you guys for all your help and support!!!
