Get Lannon to UWC Waterford

The UWC Belize National Committee is currently seeking support for a unexpected predicament. After a great selections process we selected a wonderful candidate to attend UWC Waterford Kamlahba. 

The local committee raised funds for his initial ticket and unfortunately he was denied a transit visa through the USA. They have since had to forfeit the ticket due to the category it was purchased under. We are now trying to rally support for Lannon and his family to get him to the beginning of the semester. All help is appreciated

About Lannon

During his high school years Lannon has maintained high academic records and managed to be involved with
extracurricular activities both at school and outside. During the interview we were impressed with his academic achievements despite the hardships the family faces on a daily basis. His knowledge of international and national issues was well noted as he spoke with passion on the topics discussed.
Lannon comes from a single parent family and he has two other siblings. His father died three years ago. His mom, Corrine Wade, is employed part time earning a mere USD$200 monthly. This family does not have basic utilities such as light and water because they cannot meet payments for these basic needs. Fortunately, neighbors, friends and family
assist them in any way possible. Lannon does his assignments at friends’ house or at school, neighbors give light or water when needed. The committee extended his deadline to submit documents as he has no readily available access to  internet.
Despite these living conditions Lannon has maintained high grades and has been an Honor student throughout his high school years. He is dedicated to his studies, he helps fellow students and neighbors in any way he can and yet still maintains a smile, a positive attitude and determination to further his education. He hopes to become an accountantand entrepreneur.
