I'm Elek Szabó from Hungary. I am 17 years old and I live in a village with my parents and with my 6 siblings. We live in very bad conditions: My Mum doesn't work because she needs to care for 2 of my younger sisters and she has a lot to do near the house. Our family lives from 1 salary: my Father's. He is a bus/tram driver and he usually chares (applies for temporary jobs). He usually works 18-20 hours a day and there are ocassions when the simply doesn't come home for days or sleeps at his workplace to be able to support us. He has got heart and articular problems (55years old, he has been working for 44 years)
I was the best student in the primary school for 8 years (Avg: 4.97) and in the first 2 years of the secondary school too. My parents want me to go to university so I will finish my last 2 years in 1 year in March of 2017. But the main reason for me to finish the school a year before, that I want to start working as soon as possible to help my needy family out from poverty.
That's why I launched this little collection for the price of my driving licence. A "B+C" category licence in Hungary costs about ~200.000HUF(550GBP/675USD/640EUR) it's unbeliavably much for us, naturally we can't afford it (we can't afford a card either). But if I can get this licence I can start working for DHL or can get a job in Szeged(near city).
The most important thing for me is my family. We do really need this little amount of money. I don't know how long will be father be able to work and if he disables or passes away, I am going to be the only one who can support the family.
I'm very desperate, I don't know what to do or who I should talk to. I can't earn money in schooltime. My and my family's future is very hopelessness for me.
Everything helps, and each dollar is a little part of my/our future:)
Thank you a lot in advance:
