My name is Dominique, I am 21 years old and I live and work in South Africa. I have been working to take care of myself and my mother since I was fifteen years old. At the moment I am studying for an exam which I will write in June of this year in order to complete my degree and obtain my certificate. I have an amazing job opportunity (the answer to my prayers), but I have to finish my education and get my certificate to get the job. My current employer (and my adoptive mother) is no longer able to support me. I don't earn a salary, but she has provided everything for me since I was eighteen years old (my mom and I lived in our car for a year, my mom now lives in a halfway house and I hope to continue to work to support her needs as well). At the end of March I have to leave the farm that I currently work on to return to my hometown to finish my studies. In order to do so, I need to raise $500. This will cover my rent, transportation and food costs for two months (April to May during which time I will finish my studies, attend a driving school and take my driver's test). From June to September I have a job that includes accommodation, but I need my driver's license to get the job (I can't get my driver's license in the city where I live, I can only get it in my home town in April). Your help to raise funds so that I can have a better future and still be of hope and help to my mother will be greatly appreciated.
