Anthony Dador is a South Sudanese refugee from the brutal war in Sudan where along with his brother he was imprisoned and tortured. His brother disappeared and is feared murdered. Anthony fled Sudan before South Sudan became an Independent State and found refuge in the State of Israel where he was accepted as a legal refugee and subsequently began preparatory studies to do a B.A. at the Hebrew University as a student.
During preparatory courses ("Mechina") for University Study, Vice Provost of the Rothberg School, Mr. Shimon Lipsky wrote on 30 April 2012 that Anthony "is a hardworking student with high aspirations and while studying at the Rothberg International School ("Mechina")...was a conscientious student...we were happy to have him in our school."
In a letter dated 15 July 2012, Hebrew University Rothberg International School Provost, Prof. Mimi Ajzenstadt, stated that Anthony Dador is a current student at Hebrew University living in university housing.
Anthony needs your help to go on to complete studies and eventually his B.A., pay his tuition, books, and some of his room-and-board. A private donor has already given him $1,200 to help pay for his accommodations in a dormitory at Hebrew University.
As a fellow-student at Hebrew University who knows Anthony personally, I ask you to consider helping us raise his tuition so that he can complete a B.A. and return to his native newly independent state of South Sudan to begin the process to make a difference as a leader and become a diplomat for his war-torn home country of South Sudan.
What We Need
Anthony needs to raise the funds 100% to be paid to The Hebrew University of Jerusalem for his application fee ($80), course tuition ($5,000), administrative fee ($500), and Ulpan-Language School tuition ($400), which equals $5,980 USD, rounded up to $6,000 USD for this campaign (this campaign doesn’t include money Anthony needs for food, clothing, etc). All funds will go to paying these costs. If we don’t reach our goal, all funds will be used to pay for as many courses as Anthony can pay for in the 2012-2013 academic year. Any amount we raise above $6,000 USD will go towards costs of Anthony’s room-and-board and monthly expenses (clothing, transportation, etc.).
Anthony will send every donor a thank-you postcard from Jerusalem and updates on his studies via email.
By helping Anthony you are helping one young man who is determined not to just become another statistic of the four million people in South Sudan who have been displaced by the war. He is a survivor of a war where the civilian death toll was one of the highest of any war since World War II. He has no other resources to help him except his friends, like you and me, around the world. Anthony’s spirit and resolution to succeed will be something he takes back to his native South Sudan to change his world, and our world.
