Support Abe's Schooling

In my work with urban refugees over the last four years I have come to know many remarkable teenagers.  Abe is one of these remarkable young men.  From the time I met him he has consistently sought out educational opportunities and he now has the opportunity to attend university at a school in Thailand, which will also grant him legal status as a student. Luckily, university in Thailand is much more affordable than many other places, so his school fees for the 2[phone redacted] school year will total $2,500.   Abe is hopeful for his future and the possibilities that this opportunity allows him. Please consider giving to support his school fees.  We are hoping to raise the money as quickly as possible to allow enough time for processing of his paperwork and visa for the next semester. 

School Fees for one year:  $2100
School supplies and gofundme payment processing: $400

Thank you for considering this need!

Information about how Abe will receive these funds (in accordance with gofundme compliance regulations): 
We are not related to Abe, but have known him for the last 5 years as both a former client of mine and now a friend of our family. 
As Abe does not have a bank account, I will be withdrawing the funds for Abe and paying the university directly as soon as the funds are raised or by September 1st, whichever is first. If you're at all interested to receive updates about Abe and his progress at university, please let me know!
