Personal message

My name is Elton Ackers and I am raising funds for my son, Luke Ackers, who is a 14-year-old grade 8 learner at Parktown Boys High School.

Luke was selected as one of the Top Academic Achievers at Parktown Boys’ High School based on his outstanding academic achievement and has accordingly been invited to attend the exclusive 2020 tour to the East Coast of America, organized by Travel and Sports.

The tour will see him travel to Boston, New York and Washington over a period of 12 days where he will have the privilege of attending private lectures at some of the world’s top world renowned universities which includes: MIT, Harvard, Yale University, Columbia and Princeton.  

The only challenge is that this trip is self-funded and we would really love him to experience this amazing once in a lifetime opportunity. He has never been to any other country and would really love to go and be given an opportunity to learn about other countries and their cultures.

We have up to June 2020 to make the final payment for the tour.

Reaching the target will give Luke the opportunity to attend private lectures at world renowned universities as well as spend the day at NASA.  This opportunity will allow Luke to experience the best educational tour on offer so he can work hard toward attending one of these prestigious universities.

The funds will be used for the following costs:

-       Visa,

-       Flights from South Africa to Boston, USA,

-       Accommodation,

-       Travel expenses from Boston to New Haven,

-       Travel expenses to New York,

-       Travel expenses to Washington,

-       Flights from Washington to Orlando,

-       Travel expenses to NASA,

-       Meals etc

 

*As per the campaign creator's request, funds raised will be paid directly to the relevant institution*
