Support LGBTQI Peruvian student’s education in the US

From Cris Eggers

JP is a 20 year-old person from Peru. Assaulted for being gay, JP was hospitalized for 2 weeks the final year of high school and unable to return. I am raising $29K to pay for tuition/expenses in the US.

More Info

Despite bullying and extreme prejudice and homophobia in Peru, JP is a super positive and most delightful person.   JP spent the last 2 years in Chile working to send money home to  family who are extremely poor. JP is well-educated and knowledgeable about world history, politics, and geography,  with an enthusiasm for design and fashion. I feel that JP has much to contribute to this world and given the opportunity will soar.  Please help JP realize the dream of freedom of thought and the right to exist without fear.  Thank you.  The funds will be used for tuition ($7,000 per semester) and living expenses, $22,000 a year which includes rent, food, the university’s mandatory health insurance, books, and household supplies.
