CA$840.00raised of $15,000.00 goal
Ericka Rey Manuel just graduated at the top of her class in the Philippines and has been given a partial scholarship to complete her Bachelor's in Science in Architecture at the National University Laguna.
I paid the initial fees so she could start her studies, but we need help so she can complete her programme and get her degree.
She is one of six children supported by her mother who works in Abu Dhabi for me (Maya) as my nanny. Their mother has helped pave the way for the children to all be educated by working abroad and sending every cent she can home. Meanwhile, these siblings are amazing, starting food businesses while teenagers, winning national competitions in music and growing up a lot faster than many children should.
The total programme (3 terms, 4 years) costs an additional 15,000 CAD, beyond what I have paid. Please support her if you can, because you could help change the lives of a family I care deeply about.
Here is Erika's statement:
My name is Ericka. I just graduated from high school with honours. I have been offered a partial scholarship to go to college for a bachelor of Science in Architecture. It is the chance of a lifetime for me and my family. We are not wealthy. My mother works in Abu Dhabi as a nanny. She and I have done everything we can to get the money to pay for the remaining fees for the 4 year architecture program (approximately 15,000 CAD total). Despite of poverty we are facing, I badly want to finish my studies so I can help my parents to have a better life. I promise to do my best in my study and never disappoint you. Thank you in advance, and i wish your safety in the midst of pandemic

Ericka was 29th out of 100Update posted by Maya Bhullar at 11:07 am
This semester Ericka was 29th out of her class of 100 in architecture and her drawings keep improving. As she says it was not easy but she kept working hard. Before starting university she competed in a nationwide oratory competition and placed 3rd in her province. Good job Ericka
