My name is Shannon. I am raising funds for my son, Kyle. He is currently 14 years old and he attends Hoerskool Middelburg, in Middelburg, Mpumalanga.
Kyle has been nominated by his school as one of their top achievers to go on the 7th Annual Achievers Tour to the USA in September 2020.
Travel and Sport (Academic and Sports Tours) is the recognised tour operator that runs this programme. The tour departs from South Africa to visit the following cities in the USA: Boston, New York City, and Washington.
This 12-day tour is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Kyle as they will be attending private lectures at MIT, Harvard, and Columbia Universities as well as a private walking tour of Princeton University.
World-renowned places they’ll visit include: The John F Kennedy Library and Museum; Times Square; the Rose Centre for Earth and Science; the 911 Memorial and Museum; the United Nations Headquarters and many others. This tour would provide an invaluable experience, both on an educational level as well as for the sheer life experience it offers.
We as parents are so proud of his hard work and academic achievements and would, therefore, love to make this trip a reality for him, but unfortunately, we don’t have the finances to do this by ourselves.
The funds raised will cover international flights from South Africa to the USA, hotel accommodation, guided tours, entrance fees, private lectures, food, visas, transfers, airport taxes, travel insurance, gratuities for guides and drivers, pocket money, etc.
The cost of the tour, which excludes visas and pocket money is R61 990.
If you are in a position to help, please help us make this trip a reality for Kyle by donating any possible amount to this cause.
