Education for Mustapha

I'll get right to the point. I'm trying to raise $310 for a young man from The Gambia in West Africa to attend his first term in new school.

I met Mustapha Jammeh a couple of years ago on Facebook and I have to admit I was cautious at first thinking this was just another Facebook scammer. But Mustapha never asked me for a dime and he'd send me pictures and tell me about his life. He was just looking for friendship.

To make a long story short, I recently asked Mustapha what he was doing with his life. He told me he works for about $30 per month but he wants to go to school.

He wants to attend Wescore Remedial College for nursing.

I messaged the school to confirm the costs. According to the school the cost is "$300 dollars every 2 months which includes books and two sets of uniforms."

He has to register by 12/15.

I'd like to get at least the first two month's paid. I checked MoneyGram and it'll cost $10 to transfer the money. I am making nothing out of this.

I'll keep in touch with Mustapha and the school to monitor his progress and if he is succeeding, I'll look to get the next term funded. I'll post updates about his progress to those who contribute.

This is the first GoFundMe (or any kind of crowd funding) campaign I've ever created so I'm excited to see if it makes a difference.

Thank you!
