I'm a third year university student studying software development and I need help finishing my payment for my studies.
My parents used to be able to pay for my studies but unfortunately they aren't able to do so anymore as due to a tragic accident they lost their house and jobs. They're barely surviving themselves so they aren't able to pay for my accommodation or my university.
I'm in my third and final year and I need to pay R7420 per month which is about $520 per month in order to be allowed on campus and to attend class, the latest my payments can be before I get suspended is 3 months, you can contact Varsity College Port Elizabeth South Africa campus, I would provide the contact number but GoFundMe frowns upon it. My student number is 17001059.
I managed to get a R4000 bursary this year due to good marks but they don't provide bigger ones. I am very passionate about what I'm studying and I would love to finish my studies with some help financial wise. I am currently employed as a waitress but due to me not being a South African citizen I am only allowed to legally work 20 hours a week which does not allow for a big income towards my studies and I use most of my income for food and accommodation.
I can't even access my final results for this semester because of an overdue account. But throughout the term for my subjects I got was:
Information security 83% which is a diploma
Advanced databases 97% which is a diploma
Web development intermediate 99% and 90% which is a diploma
Open source coding 73% and 75%
For the past 2 years I've been stuggling to by for my univesity but thankfully to kind and generous people I've managed to over the months pay it off now with only $2150 (estimated due to exchange rate) left for the year I hope that someone out there will be kind enough to help me achieve an education.
I will even try my best to next year when I have a job repay each and everyone that helped me provided they provide their contact details and help others in similar situations that can't afford an education.
Thank you for all the support so far it would mean the absolute world to me if you could help out even if it's even in a small way.
Will update the post everytime I'm able to pay off my study debt
