Benson Derice's education fund

This is Benson Derice,  Benson has a dream to continue his education by studying in the US. His desire is to get a degree in dentistry so he can return to Haiti and help the children in his community to better their lives. He would like to attend Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) and start with their dental hygiene and ESL programs.  If we are able to meet Benson’s financial goal, he will likely start classes in Fall 2018.


Ben is working on getting his student visa but will need to raise most of the funds needed for his education before he can start at DMACC, and he covets your prayers and help in reaching his funding goal.  Tuition for an international student for one semester of college at DMACC is approximately $3,600.  He will also need health insurance, textbooks and a laptop, and he will need to pay room and board, plus the cost to travel to the U.S.  Before Benson can be accepted to DMACC, he will need to demonstrate that he has most of two full years of tuition available.  This requirement is in place to prevent DMACC from having to kick foreign students out of the country after only a year of school.  Please prayerfully consider making a donation to Benson’s education.  Benson has a vision for improving the quality of life in Haiti, and for making a brighter future for the next generation. Your support will not only change one life, but impact the future of a community.  If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me or Benson.  Thank you for investing in Benson's future.
