Clean Water Project 4 West African kids

I have been offered an amazing opportunity to join an Engineers Without Borders project in Togo, West Africa.  The goal is to assess conditions for a water supply project there.   I am a student at the University of Mississippi, better known as Ole Miss, and have been offered this opportunity as a late summer travel abroad class.  I will graduate this December with a B.S. Geology degree and look forward to continuing on to grad school.  Participating in this project would be my first opportunity to really put into practice the education I have received thus far, and would have a very positive impact on a community.  This would be an incredible experience both educationally and personally.  Travel to this part of the world however, is well beyond the constraints of a college student's budget (at least this college student).  I am responsible for airfare, passport, visa, vaccionations, and the class fee itself.  This is a last minute plea, the trip begins on August 3, 2014.  I would so appreciate any and all support and assistance, I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can pull this all together in time!    
Thanks so much in advance!                                                              Amanda L. Couch
