*We only have until the first week of May to meet our goal! Please help this bright young woman achieve her dreams and be able to attend University. Cheska (17) of the Philippines has a dream of pursuing higher education so that she can earn a four year college degree in Financial Management to help lift herself and her family out of poverty.
