This is My Life Story!
“My name is Edwin Nyaganilwa, I was born in 1996/10/30 as a second born .
I lost my father in 2002/02/28 of malaria when I was five years old. I have two siblings.. Francisca was 3yrs, (She did not manage to finish her secondary education but our mom has worked hard to make her join vocational training school (hotel management) and is now finding a job in Morogoro, Ibrahim was 4months( he has graduated form four in my sec school, a local ward school and is among the only two boys who has passed to join high school).
Our mom raised us with a huge love struggling to bring food on the table and disciplining us, she also insisted us to study hard saying she lacked the chance to school (My mom, Adda, can not read and write but desperately knows why children should access education) this is why I study hard to succeed so as I can redeem my family.
I started primary school in 2004 and graduated in 2010, I graduated my secondary school in 2014 in Mufindi- Iringa. At all time of my studies I had to work hard by working for people to farm, carry timbers etc. in order to buy school supplies and pay school fees.
The hardest time of my school was that of joining high school , I did not know how I would get about for it needed lots of money which my family could not afford at all; getting a help from some of my relatives and nice people, my mom gave me her very own wage she earned from Foxes NGO to keep me at school.
I graduated my high school with very good grades, Division 2 of point 10(second class) and my journey to join university started. I applied for government loan but I missed it, so I had no way out to go than seeking a job at the NGO where my mom works. I later was selected to join University of Iringa, former TUMAINI, where I am taking Bachelor of Education in English and Kiswahili
The journey to start college was not as smooth as it would be to most students with well economic background but my mother and I managed to get the journey of my academic started with hardship. Things went hard and worse after my first semester but I managed to get back to college through donations of Good Samaritans.
This campaign is meant to take me back for my second year of study, 2019/2020, which will commence in October. Therefore your kind donation will help me finance a half way, yet another year, of my three years of university dream accomplishment.
Thank you for being part of my dreams, I really can not make it without your support. Thank you for reading my story and any of your tiny donation will be appreciated.
Thank you Again.
