South Africa Study Abroad

GOOD NEWS UPDATE: Since I started this campaign, I have earned another scholarship and made my own contributions. Now, I only need to fundraise $665 as soon as possible. I would truly appreciate any size donation that you could make. If you would rather share a check, money order or cash, just contact me.

Hello, My name is Briaunna Thornton and I am a part of the study abroad program at my local college. I am a current Nursing student and would like to learn about as many countries as possible. In May of 2017, I had the opportunity to travel to 4 cities in China. Shanghai, Beijing, Tian, and Ningbo. The experience was amazing and it changed my life for the greater. I loved every moment of it. Well, I've been accepted to travel once again. In June 2018, I, as well as 11 other students will be taking a trip to Durban, South Africa for a college credit learning experience. We will visit where some of the world’s influential leaders—like Gandhi and John Langalibelele Dube—started powerful movements for social change!

I and the other students have been working hard to raise funds for the trip which will cost a total of $2900 per person. Fortunately, I earned a 900 dollar scholarship, but still need to raise $2000. To learn more about the program, you can also take a look at our Ubuntudurban2018 Instagram or

Thank you in advance for your donation. You may also write a check out to me or the Sinclair Foundation.  Thank you all so much.
