Godwin Gariba is a highly motivated young man!  When he was given some money recently after being without food for several days, he paid for his classes at school first, then got something to eat.

Godwin is 17 years old.  His parents were killed 2 years ago as part of a tribal war, when their thatch hut was set on fire in the middle of the night.  Needless to say, his life has never been the same.

Godwin needs about $300/month to pay for school and food.  Converted to his local currency, that is 677 "cedis", or GHS.  The money will also provide for the 68 year old man that Godwin lives with.

Godwin is dedicated to his education, and enjoys studying business in particular.  He attends a private senior high school that is considered "college preperatory", and he works very hard.  In addition to his class fees, Godwin also occasionally needs books and supplies. 

I converse with Godwin at least once a day every day.  He is strong and resilient, but I can tell that he misses the love and support of his parents.  He has no sense of entitlemement. and is deeply grateful for any help that he receives, seeing everything good in his life as a gift from God.

I can not afford the $300/month to support this young man that I have come to love like a son, so I am reaching out to my community of friends to see if you are able to help.  Godwin & I thank you in advance!  I will post copies of the Westernn Union transfers so you know that the money you donate is going to Godwin, along with messages from him.
