Peter is enrolling in his accounting course! Jun 9, 2016
Peter's validator Sylvester from Develop Africa passed along these words of thanks:
Peter says, "I am very grateful to you for helping to cover the fees for my accounting course. Completing this course is important to me as it will help me obtain a good paying job. I will also be in a better position to help children fulfill their academic dreams - by being able to provide [financial literacy] training and support. Thank you very much."
My need and situation
I am a 43-year-old social worker from Sierra Leone. I have been helping children and their families for the past 7 years. I truly enjoy teaching kids and enjoy helping them in their learning process.
My goal is to study accounting, in order to further my career and continue to do what I love. I have identified an accounting course that will help me make this happen.
I need help covering my program tuition and my certification through the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. I know I can complete the program, but it's hard to cover all of the costs with my current income.
Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to progress with my education and improve myself.
Thank you for helping Peter fund this need.
