Young Aspiring Chemical Engineer

Update posted by Farai Masinire On Apr 12, 2017

My name is Farai Masinire. I am a Chemical Engineering student at the University of Pretoria, I have no one to pay for my fees, in my first year (2014) I worked at the same time studying, it worked a bit but it affected my grades since the course requires more time of studying.

I am the last born in a family of three brothers. Both my elder brothers couldn't further their education because of the lack of finances. With all the challenges which were going on at home, and the demotivation from seeing my brothers not progressing with their studies, I still managed to matriculate in 2012 at the top of my class at Malamulele High school in Limpopo Province South Africa.

In 2013 I took a gap year, well it was not much of my choice but the lack of finances, but I refused to be like my brothers I have a dream of becoming a chemical engineer, and I want my brothers to further their studies as well. I told my self that nothing will stand in my way. In 2014 I was accepted at one of the top Universities in South Africa (University of Pretoria). I Used the money I saved in 2013 to register for my 2014 studies.

In 2015 I took a gap year (dropped out) while paying the 2014 outstanding fees, I then taught myself how to sketch people, everyday i would stand by the traffic lights in Lynnwood road, asking for donations and commissions.

I can not afford to take another gape year. I need your help.

Please help me to spread the word to your friends, and families.

I am sincerely grateful for your generosity, all the money will go towards paying my tuition fees.

DONT WAIT UNTIL YOU GET A MILLION DOLLARS, EVEN A DOLLAR WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN MY LIFE.

Hi I have added an additional payment method (PayPal) . I couldn't open my personal PayPal account because my bank card doesn't allow online payments, instead I added a trusted friend's PayPal account (Tatenda Garwi).

Please don't hesitate to go forward with the donation when you see a different name.
