Hello everyone! As a part of trying to reach out to help other people in need, I am working to raise $3,000.00 for the charity organization Aid For Africa. Aid For Africa is a partnership of 85 different charities and individual members that work together to supply children in Africa with education books, and also educate people on how to prevent HIV. My personal goal is to raise $3000.00 to donate strictly towards books for the Aid For Africa Education Fund. The average annual cost of educating a high school student in the United States is about $7,750. In Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania combined, the average cost per year is about $650. Thus, 12 girls can go to school in East Africa for the price on one student in the US. Although the exact costs vary by school, town, and country, a small donation can make a big difference in the life of an African girl. Likewise, the cost of attending a public college in the United States is about $15,000. The cost of attending a university in Sub Saharan Africa varies by school and program, but averages about$3,000 a year. For the price of a year in a US college, five girls can go to university in Africa. I plan to support these people in need and would be grateful for small or large donations towards this cause!
