This student's original goal of $173 has been adjusted to not include a $10 money transfer fee. The remaining $10 was applied to another student's education. Donors have been made aware of this change. You can learn more here.
Kestin is a 9 year old 3rd grader in the Brong Ahafo region of mid-western Ghana. Kestin attends a low-fee private school, an increasingly popular option in developing countries. Many parents prefer to send their children to private school because the problems of the public school systems are chronic and ultimately the education at public school is not free. There are number of hidden fees.
Kestin is an energetic student who likes to play football and learn English. He enjoys the reading club and hopes to one day become a lawyer. Both of his parents were killed a fatal accident and Kestin is now cared for by his father's best friend. She earns an income by selling bread that she makes, but her profit is small and not enough to support the 4 children she is responsible for.
Kestin deserves to be educated and create a bright future for himself. His guardian is working hard to provide for the children in her care, but it is not enough. For only $172 we can ensure that Kestin is in school for a year!
