Charif's going to Turkey!!!

Dear Family and Friends,

Charif was interviewed and accepted to participate in a pilot program sponsored by Cambridge University and Capstone.  The program involves new ways of thinking and a lot of research projects for his Junior and Senior years of high school.  Being in this AP program has afforded him the opportunity to visit Turkey this spring.  This 10-day Treasures of Turkey Tour consists of exchanges with other students his age, educational activities, and visits to historical places such as Istanbul, Troy, Pergamon and Ephesus.

We are asking our family and friends for financial sponsorship to help with tuition, and we hope we can count on your support.  This experience will increase his understanding of the world and give him the opportunity to learn firsthand about other countries and their cultures.  Please take a moment to view his class trip website and watch the video entitled "The Global Classroom".

The program tuition covers meals, transportation, accommodations, and educational activities. Is it possible for you to assist us by making a contribution to help reach our goal?  Charif plans to share his experience with friends and family when he returns by presenting his journal, photographs, and experiences. 

Your contribution would enable him to share in this wonderful opportunity.  We also ask for your prayers as he prepares for this exciting journey. 


Thank you in advance for your gracious consideration and support.


With love,


Charryse & Charif Shell
