Fundraising for Africa 2011!

Michael Unger


My name is Michael Unger and I have set up this page to help raise funds for my upcoming venture to volunteer in Ghana, Africa December 26-January 9th.

I am a 19 year old student at Georgetown University majoring in International Business & Finance and minoring in Economics & International Development. Upon graduating high school I began work with the NGO Habitat for Humanity and become an active part of my campus chapter. This past summer I took part in a global build in Bali, Indonesia. Indonesia held some of the best memories and best people I have come across in my life thus far.

Additionally, I have participated in a service trip to Guatemala and took part in a Christian gathering in Australia over the past couple of years. I am driven, ambitious, and set goals for myself at university and in life. When I am finished with school, I would like to take part in development work for such organizations as the United Nations, USAID, and investment banks to further the fields of econometrics and development. This will be my first trip to Africa.

As a university student, these volunteer trips are a crucial part of my education. Oftentimes, the costs are a big factor in what I can and can not dive into. I am working as a research assistant for an economics professor making a small income in school, but have many obligations.

Every small donation will help me towards the costs of the program and my airfare. Thank you for your time and I hope to update everyone on my progress frequently over the next couple of months!
