THE STORY:

Hello family, friends, and strangers!

I have recently been awarded the opportunity to intern with an incredibly inspiring non-profit located in the Nkomazi region of South Africa. Imagine Scholar is a unique non-profit that focuses on educational programs for secondary students who are highly driven in the Nkomazi region of South Africa. My role as an intern is to fundraise and advocate on behalf of Imagine Scholar. I will be traveling to South Africa in the early months of 2015 to work directly with the students at the Imagine Scholar Academy. Imagine Scholar has a mission that is very dear to me. I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Education and am working towards a Master’s of Science in Human Services and Global Studies. Through my studies and past volunteerism I have become especially empathetic to the children and youths who lack educational support, opportunities and funding in many areas of the world. Imagine Scholar provides a remarkable curriculum that focuses on character development, critical thinking skills, English proficiency and the importance of giving back to one’s community. Students in this program are given the opportunity to learn outside of their public schooling and to learn skills that allow them to become leaders in their own community. Imagine Scholar empowers their students to take initiative and challenges them to make a difference in their community. These educational programs are also in place to prepare them for university where they will gain additional skills to be successful.

Through this campaign and other fundraising, my goal is to raise $3,000 for Imagine Scholar. Every contribution counts, no matter how small or large! These funds will be going directly to the Imagine Scholar Academy and helping to fund these very important and special programs for the youths in the Nkomazi region of South Africa.

I encourage you all to support this remarkable non-profit, whether you decide to donate or just by spreading my message with others! All contributions are extremely appreciated and will help spread awareness of such a wonderful cause! Imagine Scholar is a 501(c3) non-profit organization (EIN: 27-3014517). 
All donations are tax deductible and receipts are available.

For those interested in making monthly student scholarship donations and/or specific donations please take a look below at some expenses for student necessities:


1 Student Scholarship for 1 year =$1200
1 Full 4-year Student Scholarship = $4800

Clean, filtered drinking water for 1 month= $48 / 1 year = $576
Wireless, unlimited internet for 1 month = $85 / 1 year = $1020

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, I hope that many of you find it in your hearts to support my campaign and remember, every contribution counts and really makes a difference! I look forward to my journey ahead and cannot wait to share my experiences working with Imagine Scholar!
