THE STORY:

 

My birthday is coming up on August 22nd, and I can think of no greater way to spend it, then with helping one of my scholars embark on the experience of a life:

Grade 10 scholar Samkelisiwe got accepted to the highly selective Yale Young African Scholars program in Zimbabwe, which only selects 100 students from the entire continent! This will be her first flight and first time out of the continent, and she is excited for the opportunity!  (Samkelisiwe is CEO of the Imagine Scholar business club, part of the book club and the health club, and always goes above and beyond in class discussions and math assignments)

Unfortunately, due to new restrictions on traveling, Samkelisiwe cannot travel alone as a minor, despite filing all the correct paperwork needed. I believe Samkelisiwe is part of the future of this country and this continent, and so I bought a ticket with full belief that I will find a way to cover the costs. The program has covered Samkelisiwe's flight and costs, but I am hoping to fundraise for the cost of my flight which is over $500.


Please help me me accompany Samkelisiwe on this chance of a lifetime!
