LoRay's Summer Abroad in Senegal
Organized by: LoRay Davis
This fundraiser is for LoRay Davis's summer abroad at the Dakar Institute in Senegal. She will be studying Islam and African Society (African American Studies 415) and also enrolled in a Wolof course (Wolof 101). The cost of the tuition is 3,800 not including airfare fees. LoRay was accepted into this program in order to enhance her understanding of the daily lives of Africans. Her purpose is to demystify the stereotypes associated with African American women in America and Africans in Africa as well as connect to her native roots in the Motherland. By taking this upper division African American Studies course and language course, LoRay will be able to bring her international perspective back to the United States and shed light on the knowledge that she learned by teaching others in her community. Any size donation to this cause is greatly appreciated.
