This is for Zachariah, an intelligent and resourceful Deaf student from Kenya, who deserves a helping hand in attending the English Lanuage Institute of Gallaudet University. He has been accepted but his tuition of $27,000, which will be paid directly from us to the English Lanuage Institute must be raised, and he needs money for expenses, such as air fare from Nairobi to Washington D.C.

Zach Part II

In the end, it was more complicated than I had thought. I had to send the $771 via Western Union in fact, and pay $40 for the transfer expense, in addition to my original contribution. 

Zach continues to write me most every day. I was hoping he would have found others on the internet to help him for "Part II".

Today, Zach wrote: 

 "Today i check my blog..I thank all my Friends who was contribute my
fundraiser...God bless all my friend.I will go to Gallaudet because
lack of high school.I will go back to technical then will back to
gallaudet again.I would like let you.You sent me $771 and paid to
school in Kenya balance $1300 so you help me to pay all my
school....please you will campaign for my fundraiser for technical
again?

yesterday i went to court with all my family.they told judge that am
not member family.THEY WON........THEY WILL REJECT ME AS SOON.WHERE I
WILL GOING TO?WHO WILL EASY TO CAREFUL OF ME  BUT I DONT HAVE ANY
MEMBER FAMILY .THEY TAKEN ME FROM BOY STREET BOT WHEN I WAS YOUNG..AM
BECOMING ORPHAN."

It seems that he has been rejected by his family. Is it because he has become more independent thanks to the money we sent him, but which only covers part of his high school expenses? (He needs the HS (equivalency) diploma to reapply to Gallaudet).

It has always been hard to understand Zach, but the central message is clear. He really does need sustained help. He doesn't seem autonomous.

I was hoping that this experience might have given him enough experience to make new contacts himself. 

Does anyone want to continue this charity site? I really have to concentrate on my own work now.

  1. I actually found a pretty good site called "chip-in" it allows people to donate to your cause via a few different methods.

    Here is mine, as you can see I have zero donations, partially because I just started, and partially because everywhere I post this is considered "spam" and deleted. I figure here its legit since I'm sharing the link with other people looking for donation ideas :D. I think it would work very well if you had a popular blog (I don't).
