Help a College Student from Malden Take a Trip to South Africa

Each Thursday during the holiday season, we’ll be featuring a GoFundMe campaign in the Malden area.

A college student from Malden has launched a GoFundMe campaign with the hopes of taking a school trip to South Africa this winter.

Nephthalie Bernard, a senior at Wheaton College, is trying to raise $2,000 to cover the cost of the trip. As of Thursday morning, she had received several donations totaling nearly $500.

"As a senior, in my final year of college, I've been accepted to attend the Winter Faculty-led trip to South Africa in January 2014," Bernard wrote on her campaign page. "There, we will learn more about the life journey of the famously inspiring world figure, Nelson Mandela. We will explore the history of Apartheid that took place in Johannesburg, affecting the lives of many. 

"I have been saving up and hoping to go on this trip since my freshmen year but still do not have enough funds to make this trip final."

Donations can be made to Bernard's cause by clicking here.
