  Meet the incredible Andrew Johns...     


Andrew is from Johannesburg, South Africa.
For the past 10 years, he has lived in Nkosi's Haven, a home for mothers and children whose lives have been affected by HIV/AIDS.
He is 20 years old.

Andrew has a dream.
He wants to go to college and study Business in the United States.

You can make this possible... No donation is too small!
All donations are appreciated deeply. 

"I am surrounded by children who look up to me, and I am intent to show them that you shouldn't let your current situation determine who you become in the future.  From being a young man who lives in an orphanage in South Africa, I am eager to attend a U.S. university, because being born in the ozone of apartheid's ending, I want to spend the next four years breathing the air of equal opportunity that is the American dream which in South Africa in 2015 is not yet a reality."                                                                                                - Andrew Johns

                    Read Andrew's story here:  (Seriously, read it. It's incredible.)

Through ASTEP (Artists Striving To End Poverty), Andrew met Dick Scanlan and Alex Sharp. After a lot of hard work over the past 2 years, Andrew has applied, been accepted to, and received a very generous scholarship from St. Michael's College in Vermont.  This is a truly groundbreaking achievement, and the first of its kind, for a person from his community.

And Andrew needs your help to make it all the way.
He still needs $29,000 to be able to attend St. Michael's.
