My name is Londiwe, I am a 2nd year student at the University of Kwazulu-Natal and I'm currently doing a finance degree.
I would consider myself a determined and hard-working young lady, I am the first in my family to attend university and we were raised by a single uneducated mother who always tried and worked so hard to make sure we had a full belly and that despite our circumstances, that we were happy.
My reason for starting this campaign is because university expenses have been piling up for me and it's been hard to find work that allows me to earn enough to support myself and my family as well as have enough time so that I do not neglect my studies. I have been looking for work for about 8 months to no avail. I do not have any other sources I can turn to for help since I come from a poor family and usually have to find a way to make do for myself therefore things have been really difficult.
Home is too far from university therefore I found accomodation closer to varsity but I am now about 3 months behind on rent and will most likely get kicked out by next week unless I make payment. This will really affect my education negatively as I can't afford to travel each day therefore I will miss out on a lot of work done which would be so difficult to catch up seeing as though we are also in the middle of tests and exams. Another reason I started this campaign is to try raise money for textbooks to enable me to study better.
I really do hope you kind souls will find it in your hearts to assist me in anyway. Obtaining this degree would be a way to help my family to get out of poverty and I could finally be the one to take care of my mother after all she's done for me.
Please any donation would so helpful and greatly appreciated! Thank you so much in advance.
