Aggrey's College Fund

While in Uganda I became convinced that education is the way up for that country. Change will come from the inside-out.

Part of this realization came because I routinely met SO many impressive young people. They are humble, amiable, hardworking people. These young people will shape the future of Uganda, Africa and maybe the world.

One of the most impressive young men I met is my friend Aggrey. He was a translator who helped us with our research. He has great English. He's a huge tease who loved taunting me and my futbol playing friends. And around the right people he was a gregarious storyteller--I can still remember his high-pitched voices and the deafening sound of laughter filling our van.

Aggrey has been accepted to study Civil Engineering at a nearby university. We have collected $1120 for him, which will keep in school until December. However, unless we can raise him another $420 by January he won't be able to finish the year--at that point, if he doesn't have the money--he will be kicked out. 

He has always dreamed of going to college. He was accepted over two years ago, but just can't make enough money for tuition. I want Aggrey's dream to come true. In fact, I want to MAKE Aggrey's dream come true. Who's with me?

Please help, if you can. Any amount will do.
