Please help Doma complete her life-transforming education at Hampshire College.  She has completed her second year with great success — see the evaluations of her work.  Now she needs funding for her third year.  She is determined to be one of the rare students who graduate in four years.

Doma tells her compelling story in these college application essays:  In What I Learned from my Mother Doma writes, “in a community of well-educated, wealthy students, I realized there is actually no limit to what I can do.”  In My Greatest Gift she writes about her mother’s gift of an education.  Doma’s Common Application Essay tells how Doma grew ever more determined to “learn so I can be part of the generation that transforms Nepal.”

The financial aid awarded to Doma is the greatest Hampshire College has given any international student, but I must provide an additional $100,000.   My wife and I have contributed $25,000.  Please help, and please ask your friends to help, too.  Let me add you to the community of donors to whom I send monthly updates.

  1. Hi Martin. I was trying to donate to Doma’s fees. I can’t get the Donate button to take me anywhere.

    Hi Alison. Thank you very much for your donation (when you found the one button that worked!) and for the bug report. I’ve fixed the other two buttons now. I should know better than to do my own QA 😉
