I live and work as a volunteer teacher in a Children's home in Pretoria, South Africa. I already have a teaching degree. The children I teach are either orphaned, abandoned or come from very poor backgrounds. As I continued teaching them, I discovered that they have a lot of psychological issues that need to be addressed by a trained Psychologist/Counsellor. The Home is struggling and cannot afford to hire a Psychologist/Counsellor. I therefore decided to enroll for a degree in Psychology/Counselling at the University of Pretoria so that I could assist these kids and others in the future.
I earn very little as a volunteer and have not therefore been able to complete my studies (I enrolled 3 years ago). I had to drop out of college last year because I ran out of school fees. I am looking for any kind person out there who can help me fulfill my dream of becoming a trained Psychologist/Counsellor before age catches up with me (am 49). This degree will help me to offer the much needed counselling services to my students. It will also help me to give back more to the community in future.
I will appreciate whatever you can donate. Thank you.
