This money will go toward sending my friend Enock Dickson to High School in Ghana. Please help if you can! Even $20 would be awesome :)

Enock Dickson is a teenager I met while volunteering in Ghana from January-April. He approached me soon after I started teaching at the school because he was curious about what I knew. I asked him what he wanted to learn, and he told me, "Anything you can teach me." I started tutoring him in the evenings after school, and quickly found out how smart he was. He nicknamed himself "Ice Tea," probably because he is equally as cool as he is intelligent. He has finished Form 3, and the next step is Senior High School. To attend, he must live on the school grounds, because most places are too far from home. A year at boarding school will cost $1,200, plus transportation fees for when the school has to be vacated for breaks. Someone is sponsoring half of every year for the 3 years he will be in school, so I am trying to raise the other half, plus some extra for transportation costs, and to buy Enock a phone. Please help if you can, it would mean so much to a teenager with surely such a bright future.
