Hi! I'm a freshman student at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, currently taking up Bachelor of Secondary Education Major in Science.
I live together with my mother and my grandparents at Caloocan city. I'm asking for help to finance my college education and also to help my mother grow her small sari-sari store (variety store). Her store have been our family's main source of income for years now, and it only yields around PHP 250 a day or PHP 7500 pesos a month for all our expenses. That is why we have been really struggling financially. My mother have tried other ways to increase her income or to find an actual job but she is worried for my grandparents since they need someone to watch over them. I spend most of my time at the university and travelling from Manila to Caloocan back and fort is taking such a huge amount of my vacant time.
My education is a very important thing for me since it is all I have other than my family. I'm doing everything I can to do well in college and my mother is working very hard to help me. I've also been browsing and looking for scholarships and other financial grants but it seems they won't be available till the end of this semester. All the funds I'll raise will be put into good use. Thank you.
