Hello dear donor,
My name is Manoj Sahu and I am from India. I am 25 years old and got a job. Now you may wonder why I am doing this fund raising when I already have a job. Bear with me for the long explanation
I come under below poverty line in here. My mom is 50 and she work in construction site as a labourer. My dad is a worker in steel plant. After work at the company he works outside, cleans toilets of people and washes car. After all of these earnings we are barely left with anything. I too support my parents mentally and monetarily. They brought me up, took good care of me and paid for my entire education from kindergarten to graduation. I am doing my duty and paying them back.
After all of this I am barely left with anything. I get paid 25-26k INR every month. Whatever is left after food, rent and paying back to parents I am saving. But that is not enough. I have saved around 100000 Indian rupees till date since 2017. I want to pursue masters in supply chain management from UCD Smurfit, Ireland. I am 100% sure I will get admission there. I have 3 years and 6 months work experience and good academic record. Now the tuition fee for this program is 14000-15000€ which roughly comes out 1246490 - 1335525 Indian rupees. I tried looking for loans but the banks here require collateral for loans greater than 700000 Indian rupees. Disappointed by the fact, I don't own anything to provide as collateral. I live in a rented 2 room apartment with three other people to share the rent. I have been told I won't receive any loan from any bank as I don't have anything to give them for collateral. 😞 Days are getting darker and I'm getting older but the situation is not changing. To add to tuition fee I will be needing at least 400000-500000 more for plane ticket and at least the amount to survive for a month before finding any part time job.
I almost gave up of higher education before I came to know of fund raising. Even your 1$ support would help me keep myself motivated and hopeful that one day I will graduate from UCD Smurfit. Also it's one of the cheapest from Indian point of view. Please help kind people.
I can also do data entry or any other job if you have any.
