Help Iman go to college in the US

Meet Iman.  

Iman is a student from Kabul, Afghanistan.  On his own initiative, he came from Kabul to study at Roycemore School in Evanston Illinois.  Education in Afghanistan is very limited, and he knows that he will benefit from a high-quality American education.  Iman's father works for a mechanic in Saudi Arabia to just barely support his family in Kabul, and Iman went so far as to work in a factory setting as a young teenager to help pay for math lessons for himself and shoes for his siblings.   So far in the US, he has done some excellent school work, done some beautiful photography, and built some wonderful relationships.  Iman says he wants to return to his country to improve its educational system and in particular, to expand learning opportunities for women and girls in Afghanistan.

We have been privileged to host Iman this school year and have welcomed him into our family.  We hope you will join us in supporting him on his journey to continue his education at a college in the US.  After much work, he has been admitted to Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC, with a full-tuition scholarship and part -- but not all -- of his other costs to attend.  To go, he needs to raise funds to cover the remaining room, board, books, and other costs of being a US college student.

In addition to being incredibly motivated, Iman is generous, loving, observant, and unfailingly polite.   He has been a positive presence in our family and community and at Roycemore School.  Please help him continue his US education by donating to this campaign.

Thank you,
