Please consider donating to a good cause of assisting in sending a college student to Bangkok, Thailand to study international trade abroad.

Please join me in helping to raise funds for Troy Robinson, as he plans to travel to Bangkok, Thailand for 15 days to study International trade & logistics abroad.

Troy is a rising junior & business/economics major, at the renowned Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA. He has a GPA of 3.64 and has been appointed onto the dean’s list of scholars there. He's the epitome of a great kid whom exemplifies honor, integrity, hard work and humility.

Throughout his career at Morehouse, Troy has continued to work part-time as a financial aid assistant while maintaining his grades and community services. This trip/mini class will afford Troy 3 credit hours that will count towards his overall course credits. While in Bangkok, Troy will be studying international trade while also studying the culture of Bangkok & learning how overseas economy is run.

The long term impact that studying abroad exposes individuals to, can't be measured and if possible should not be passed up...

Morehouse relishes in producing Renaissance Men who are well balanced, well dressed, well read, well spoken and well traveled.

With your help we can contribute to their motto, one student at a time. I cannot think of any one more deserving than my son, Troy Robinson.

"Students who have been reared in the United States must travel to other countries in order to experience the essential 'decentering' that comes from leaving home and looking back to assess and understand ones origins. As the planet grows smaller and its citizens become more interdependent, it is more important than ever for each of us to develop broad perspectives, skills and leadership that consider the population of the entire globe: this is the making of the global citizen."
-Dr. Robert M. Franklin '75, President of Morehouse College
