Send Amina to College

Amina is from a small town in rural Ghana in West Africa, where her dreams of going to school were hindered by certain members of her family who thought she would be more useful at home.  Amazingly, she did everything in her power to learn English, move to a larger town, and attend high school.  She graduated as one of the top students in her class, and plans to go to college.  Her dream is to attend medical school and become a surgeon, so that one day she may return to her home in Ghana and help her people.  She is highly motivated, ambitious, smart, and kind, but she lacks resources.  She was discovered by a team of Peace Corps volunteers, who have been sponsoring her ever since.  She has received a partial scholarship from Africa's Tomorrow, but it will not cover her full tuition.  This page is to help Amina attend college in the US, and to help her realize her dreams!  She has already been accepted into college, and the final step is to fund it.  All help is greatly appreciated, and every penny will benefit Amina!  Thank you!!
