Dar Vanderbeck's Fundraiser:

Send Enuch to University of Nairobi!

In 2007, the Mwachari family took me in and let me stay in their home while I worked for an NGO in Coastal Kenya. An incredible, generous and loving family - the experience very much changed my life.

Enuch, my host brother, was particularly inspiring. He has wanted to be a journalist for the last 3 years and though he graduated from high school with the highest marks, he could not afford college. After much saving, hard work and dedication, he took a leap and applied to University of Nairobi this year. This was a huge/huge achievement as he would be the first person in his family to ever attend university. I have no doubt will be a force of change in Kenyan civil society and he has worked beyond hard for this opportunity.

Unfortunately, their family has not been spared from the economic crisis and they can no longer afford tuition. Enuch is only $1200 away from making tuition, but the timeline is very short to be able to provide the funds.

This is why, as a last resort, his mother (Mama Leah) reached out to me. Giving only a small amount, what you have, could have the hugest impact on his life and the well-being of his family.

We have two weeks to raise $1200 which I will wire directly to the University if we can make it happen. Again, giving whatever you had would have the most significant impact on his life and let him achieve his dream of attending college.
