My name is Ife. I have the opportunity to travel to my homeland of Africa this spring, with my school. We are going to Kenya, on a 10 day trip during my spring break.  There is $2,250 due November 20. This is a once in a lifetime chance, and I don’t want finances to keep me from my mission. We will be visiting a school, delivering school supplies, going on a safari to visit exotic animals and walking the land of my ancestors . I have been learning Kiswahili in preparation for this trip. Not only is there the fun and experience of actually going to Africa, but it will also be a learning experience for me. I will be able to experience life as an African.  I have never been before, but have heard nothing but wonderful things. It will definitely not be my last time traveling to Africa, but I need a place to start, and why not now? This will be something I can talk about for the rest of my life, and knowing that you contributed, and helped this become a reality for me would be amazing. I have been taught in an African centered community all of my life, and now being able to actually visit Kenya is a dream come true.
