My name is Vainqueur Mahirwe and I'm a SADC first-year student at the University of Cape Town where I'm undertaking a bachelor's degree in Computer Science. I'm in urgent need of your support as my current sponsor is unable to finance my studies for the next two years due to business losses he incurred this year as a result of covid19 and lockdown.
A little bit about myself: I'm very passionate about software programming and have, for the most part, taught myself everything I know about it. Additionally, I have been involved in a number of non-profit projects, the most popular one being "Social Relief". Social Relief is an ongoing open-source project and a website that provides transparent and reliable distribution of funds from individual donors to people affected by Covid-19 in Kenya. You can view my contributions to the project on github as well as the deployed website here
The amount I'm trying to raise is for the next two years of my degree. It will go towards covering tuition fees, accommodation, food, medical plans, and traveling expenses (to and from Swaziland). Tuition and accommodation fees usually range between 165000 and 170000 rands per year (or between $9800 and $10000). Please find attached a picture of my statement of account as proof. Also attached is a picture of my first-semester grades.
Helping me raise this amount would not only allow me to complete my degree but it would also ensure that I meet the requirements to be hired in the industry once I go out looking for a job. Thank you in advance for your help and support.
