Hakim's Journey to become an English Teacher
Organized by: Andy Fuller
So, I just started this fundraiser for my friend Hakim. He is from Comoros. Yes.... that is a country. I had to google it as well before I moved there in 2014. It's a small African nation in the Indian Ocean in between Madagascar and Mozambique. Comoros is an archipelago of hauntingly beautiful Islands. However, due to sever poverty, corruption, lack of public services, little to no electricity, and limited education opportunities, my friend Hakim is seeking help to study English in Tanzania with the British Council. I met him when I was living and working in Comoros during 2014-2015. He is definitely one of the most wonderful people I have ever met in my life. Hakim and his family treated me as if I was one of their family from the beginning. I learned how to cook local food from his sisters and his mother always smiled and hugged me when I came over. Hakim was my personal tour guide while I lived in Comoros. In exchange for his help and friendship, I often mentored him in his desire to be an English teacher. Hakim has so much motivation and potential. Please help me raise money to support his continuing education. His country and the young people he teaches English to on a volunteer basis will absolutely benefit from our generosity.
