Raising for Rwanda

Dear Friends and Family,

I am raising money to help fund my trip to Rwanda for a 6 month non-paid internship (Sept 2011-February 2012) with Educat, where I was selected out of 150 applicants! As I have unfortunately not been able to secure a job at this time, I thought it would be a great opportunity to lend my expertise in hopes of further enhancing Rwanda\'s avid efforts for economic development.

Educat is an INGO who has been working on developing educational training programs for local entrepreneurship since 2009. You can visit their website at www.educat.dk

I will be working on planning, organizing and developing the organizations\' short-term training programs, which targets local individuals, micro-enterprises and larger corporations.

As it is unpaid, I am trying to raise $3000 to cover the cost of my trip, visa and medical insurance, where any additional money raised will be directly donated to the training programs of Educat!

All donations are greatly appreciated--even 10,$15 or $25 can make a huge difference--and are made safely and securely through PayPal (you don\'t need to have a PayPal account to contribute)!

Thank you in advance and please feel free to pass this along to any family and friends who might also be interested in donating!

Best regards,
