Dear people of good will;
I would be out-of-my-mind grateful if you would support my crowdfunding to raise tuition fees so I can become responsible peacebuilding professional. I have just over 6 months to raise enough funds to be able to start my MA IN CONFLICT RESOLUTION AND COEXISTENCE at THE HELLER SCHOOL FOR SOCIAL POLICY AND MANAGEMENT, which begins in Fall 2020.The Heller School for Social Policy and Management is one of the four graduate schools of Brandeis University located in Waltham, Massachusetts, United States
My country Cameroon has been in war since 2016, a conflict which started as a marginalization problem has escalated to full fledged war between the government forces and the English speaking minorities, leaving over 6000 dead and thousands seeking refuge in the neighboring Nigeria and in the bushes, hundreds of villages completely burnt down and deserted. The prolonged nature of the crisis/war is as a result of lack of professionals in the field of public policy and particularly conflict resolution and coexistence. For this reason I decided to pursue a masters program on conflict management and coexistence, but because of lack of funds, I decided to travel to Thailand to do so teaching job so as to help me raise money for the tuition fee. Unfortunately for me, the teaching job in Thailand is only capable of helping me survive, owing to the fact that I have a wife and two kids. Realizing the task of raising the tuition fee for the course is seeming difficult and unsuccessful single handed, I decided to appeal to your magnanimous conscience for your support. The total cost for tuition and fees for this course is approximately $83, 880. However, i'm appealing for a support of $52,000.
Your generosity will go directly to covering the tuition fees of the course. How I get myself to the USA will be for me to figure out.
What makes this course so special is the professional skills-based training, meaning I’ll be able to walk away with everything I need to be one of those who will be engage in the resolution and management of the prolonged internal conflict that has been a major problem hindering the development of my country for close to 58 years. The Heller is the only graduate school where the idealism of a social justice mission meets the rigor and prestige of a top-ranked policy school
Once I become a professional in the field of conflict management, i will return to my country, so as to implement what i have acquired to bring lasting solutions and therefore accelerate the development process which has been laying stagnant for decades.
It has not been so easy for me to consider the option of asking for your support, but the honest truth is that without your support I will be defeated.
Please, any amount will make such an impact, knowing you are supporting me to save a nation and save lives.
