I had always want to develop my educational background to be educated in an environment where everything needed is being provided. In early 2016, I received an acceptance email from the African Leadership Academy congratulating me on my admission into the Class of 2016. Formerly, I felt happy and this made me realized that want I always desired is now something that have come to reality and I am indeed acquiring an education from elsewhere in a bright fine environment with likeminded individuals like myself who are zealous to make this world a better place to dwell in. Upon my acceptance, although it made me happy but I did not know where to start from in paying for my tuition at the Academy.
Moreover, I am leaving with my mother who is a single parent and a community health worker whose monthly wage is $30 dollar and that in no circumstances will be able to cover my two years diploma program at ALA. Considering the fact that she is up keeping the home and taking care of me and three of my cousins. The tuition I need to pay is $1,167.65 without my first year fees includes. My mother and I were able to work generate my tuition for the first year.
Meanwhile, after working tirelessly in raising my tuition we realized that we had no time left to process my visa to study in South Africa. I had to travel to Ghana because there is no South African embassy in Sierra Leone to be able to process my visa. This then become a rare situation because the only money we had was to pay for my first year tuition. Unfortunately we agreed to use the money we generate for my tuition to pay my visa fees to Ghana so that I can process my visa and travel to South Africa. I successfully did my visa and immediately depart to study at ALA in early September the same here I got admitted. Fast forward, towards the end of my first year I was asked to pay my tuition which I was opportune by someone who covered the cost for my first year tuition.
Nonetheless, I made this Fundraising page because I need to complete the payment of my remaining tuition which is $1,167.65 in order for me to graduate at ALA with a diploma. And if I did not pay I will not graduate with my diploma and there will 5% increase every month on the remaining tuition. I will kindly like you to help me with any cost so that I will be able to graduate with my diploma and with ALA’s class of 2018 graduates. I am supposed to pay before the 15 th June, 2018. I will appreciate any amount donated as acquiring this diploma means a lot to me, my mother and the whole extended family because I will be the first person ever in the family to graduate from oversea and my dream of getting a well-developed education will come to actuality.
Thanks in advance for helping me achieving this dream.
