Hello. My name is Bila. I’m currently finishing my degree in pedagogy in Indonesia. Since last year, I’ve been struggling in paying my tuition fee due to the pandemic but luckily I still could pay for it last year. I gave an online french lesson for some students last year and already ended and still haven’t got a new student. My parents have a small clothing shop that has been very affected by the whole situation since last year and now the income is possibly used only for our daily basic necessities like foods and stuffs. I have 3 younger siblings who attend school too.
Unfortunately, I’m entering the new semester this March, I’ll be paying the tuition fee for this semester late (the date for payment starts this February 22, the payment will be open for about 2 weeks) and this will be my last semester at university but I don’t have any savings anymore and my parents aren’t sure they can pay my tuition for this semester due to the financial problem and some family members (which are my dad, my sister, and I) are just recovered from covid-19 after a month. I got a scholarship for one semester and already ended now. My dad hasn’t been allowed to work since he was tested positive and didn’t get salary and financial aid from his office. I’m waiting for my 2 final steps before graduation, those are final exams for my thesis and will have to pay for the thesis publishing and the graduation registration. That’s quite a lot for my family now to pay but we also wish for me to have finished the last steps soon so I can apply to job as soon as possible and help my parents paying my siblings’ tuition fees.
From the deepest of my heart, I’m very thankful for any amount you would give me. That will not just help me but also my family in our crisis right now. Besides all that, I live in a neighborhood where there are 2 homeless kids living in a traditional market near my house. They don’t go to any school and everyday collecting rubbish to give to the rubbish collecter and get food for a day. I’m working on a mini project to give them free non-formal education so they can at least get some educations like other kids who go to school. The amount of money that raise more than expected will go to these kids’ needs like shirts, pants, foods, books, and shoes.

Thank you so much in advance from my family and me. All your kindness will be helpful
