"A child without education is like a bird without wings"
Way back in 2014 my son had to stop in 3rd year high school due to our family’s financial difficulties but because of his desire to continue his studies, a year later he took the ALS (Alternative Learning System) exam which he passed, enabling him to continue his studies for any college course.
In school year 2016 his journey began as a college student taking BS InfoTech course to one of our state university in the province. I am still financially struggling back then so he opted to have a part time job in the evening and go to school in the morning. I know that it’s a lot harder doing both things but I have no choice but to let him do it since I still cannot fully support his studies at that particular time. As a father I am proud of him because at a young age he is already responsible and knows his priorities in life. A lot of times he even contributes to our family’s needs.
At the moment his is taking his internship program as part of the course requirement and this coming school year he will already start his thesis work which could add more pressure to his studies. If only I am capable of supporting him full time I would like him to just concentrate on his studies until graduation, but things are just not going in our favor until now my financial woes continues, I am still at rock bottom and making ends meet is getting harder, there are even times that my son’s income are dragged to help ease our monthly expenses leaving him short with his school needs. The situation is really agonizing in my part seeing my kids suffers because of my shortcomings.
However, I maybe a father that is lacking in many things but my priorities in life are my kids and my utmost desire is to see them finished their college education, but things are really getting harder now especially for my son, if we can only endure for another year until graduation, then perhaps he can find a better job and help our family overcome our current situation.
That is why I created this fund raising campaign to appeal for support to kind hearted and financially able individual or institutions around the globe to please help my son in his final year of his studies so that he can acquire his degree and have the chance to have a better life and someday do his share in building a better society. I am already 55 years of age and even though I am a skilled worker having a full time job at my age level is near to impossible in our country. That is why I am hoping and praying that God will touch someone’s heart to extend a helping hand for my son’s final year in college. Any amount or form of donation that can help this campaign are welcome and will be highly appreciated.
The proceeds of this fund raising will be particularly used to support his day to day needs and other school expenses for school year 2019 so that he can focus more in his studies and not to worry more in the financial aspect.
