My dreams are evaporating. Same as the dreams of my siblings. I thought by joining university, everything will workout right. How was I to know that my university education will be terminated in the 1st semester, leaving my thirst for education unquenched and my hopes all shattered gone. Who was I to run to for my rescue? Who was I to blame? Maybe god, or is it my fate?
It all began when my dad fell from the top of a coconut tree. His legs were injured, and the problem became worse and worst.Now he can’t walk and work. Before, he was doing all that he could to make sure that I graduate with a bachelor of science in computer science.He was making sure that all my siblings were in school. Now we are back to square one. Poverty is what defines us. Sometimes the family goes without food. We lack even the common basic needs. There are no more smiles at home. Only sad faces and cries.
Now who is to take the responsibility? It’s me. Despite being only 19years old, it’s no one but me. I am the first born, and I can’t run away from this reality. Sometimes tears just drop down my eyes, seeing my dream of going to university vanishing just like that. It makes me cry even the more when I see my young sisters and brothers being chased from school due to lack of school fees. How will they make it in life if they don’t get education? My greatest fear is that, this poverty may compel them into prostitution. It might even lead to early pregnancy.
I don’t have a good job. I do any casual job that comes around. It’s so sad that whatever I am getting is not even enough to cater for the needs of the family, leave alone with paying for college fees. But with the little that am getting, I have managed to undertake a driving training and got myself a valid driving license. All am begging from you is only 3000 US dollars to buy even if it’s a secondhand TukTuk. With it, I will work hard to raise enough money for the following;
- Education of my siblings.
- Cater for the family needs.
- Save something which I can use to pay college fees and start studying part timely.
This is how I will use your contribution;
Buying secondhand TukTuk $2 800
County governments permit $ 100
Insurance $ 30
Some fees to join the existing operators $ 20
Some slight modification of the TukTuk $ 50
You are my only remaining hope. People say one can’t see God, but I want to see my god in you. Please help us. I so badly want to go to university. I so badly want my siblings to go to school. I want my family to smile again. Please help me bring back happiness in my family. Please, anyone out there, raise your hands and lift us up.Please in the mercy of God, we are begging you to give us the light, give us the strength Inform of your contribution. Pity the sorrows of this poor boy whose trembling limbs have brought him to your door.
