Help me help a close friend

Precious Onuigbo is a 21 year old college student in Africa in desperate need of a up to date laptop or tablet. He is a very motivated young man that desires a reliable electronic device in order to obtain gainful employment. Africa has a shortage of jobs for the citizens. Transportation is limited and Precious is from a rural area. Rural areas have even less opportunity in an already limited environment. Fortunately he does have access to the internet and knows a laptop or tablet will enable him to gain work from home employment. He has found several jobs for which he wishes to apply in areas such as freelance writing, data entry, and customer service jobs.

I started this go fund me for him in hopes of finding him a device. I’ve been friends with him for two years now and he is a very respectful and gracious young man. I have helped him out on a couple of occasions. He was incredibly grateful. He  has not once asked me to help him. I did it voluntarily. I would hate to see this young man’s future fail to blossom for lack of a device. I know he will use the device to work. His hope is to start saving money to relocate when he finishes school in 2022.

My goal is to raise $1,000. Even though I could buy him a nice device with $500, I would like to raise enough to purchase the device of his choice. I want to make sure whatever I buy that it is new. Electricity is an issue in his area so a new device with a well rated battery life is what I will buy. Please help me help him. Thanks so much for reading the cause. Please share.
