New Nigerian Documentarian

$1,750 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 90 people in 15 months
Tobi is a student in Nigeria who has just been hired as a videographer while he finishes his schooling for Electrical Engineering.  While we won't be hiring him as a full time job, hiring him with a few gigs will help him earn money to complete college, buy books and even a generator to allow him to charge his phone and continue reading after it gets dark.  

Tobi lives with 4 other students who will also make use of the generator. 

What will Tobi be doing to earn his way?  He's agreed to document some interesting aspects of his daily life and film it for us to learn as well.  A youtube channel has been setup for the editing of the videos which Tobi films with his phone.  Donations will also cover the cost of his data service, as he has no wifi or internet in his village. It wouldn't be fair to run up his phone bill. 

The only fees will be from GoFundMe, and the money transfer fee, otherwise it will all go directly to Tobi.

Sorry for the delay, i was out of town. Tobi got his ID and the payment I sent, he's recovering from his exhausting trip to rural villages. Editing them currently.

Tobi just got back from his trip to a tribal area. The photos are amazing. I can’t edit a video until Saturday. But wow. Thanks so much. He’s working super hard.

Tobi is on his way to a remote village. He's definitely earning his pay. He's been on a bus for 12 hours. He says it's in Oyo state. Videos are coming in, and he's almost mastered the horizontal filming :D.
Looking sharp!

We've reached our Goal. Reddit, Facebook and PetaPixel communities pushed this over the top. Tobi still will get all of it. He's going to a tribal village this weekend. It is a 4 hour bus ride. He will stay for 2 days and come home. Hard work for him will be paying him very fairly. When he comes home, he will interview his own village elders.
