The Opportunity of a Lifetime

Assist me in raising $5,000 by June 17th, 2014 to fund my participation in Operation Crossroads Africa 2014! Expenses will go toward: international airfare, orientation costs, in-country transportation, materials, food, accomodations, scheduled program expenses, visas, and international health insurance. As a premier cross cultural program Operation Crossroads is internationally recognized for providing North American students the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of Africa as a continent and the diverse cultures of its various countries during a 7 week program consisting of 6 weeks working hands on to complete a development project geared toward Women's Empowerment, Health care, and Education alongside members of the Atabu Village in Ghana, along with 1 week of travel to further expose young Americans to the African diaspora. 
     In addition to an intense commitment to political activism and volunteerism, I recognize that in an increasingly global society, an experience of this magnitude will not only contribute to a greater understanding of my role as a global citizen but will undoubtedly afford me the unique perspective and compassion that can only be achieved on a first hand basis. Support me as I anticipate embarking on the journey of a lifetime. Your contribution will LITERALLY mean the World to me!
