Khalil from San Diego, California

I'm ready to begin a nursing career in the US. Help me cover my tuition.

I came to the U.S. seeking asylum, but can't apply for financial aid at this time. I need help covering tuition for a CNA program and supplies.


I am Khalil, I am 24 years old. I have tried to go to college to study but I do not have money to be able to do so.

My goals are to get become a CNA to help people and to earn good money to support myself and my family and have a better career.

I need money for tuition for a CNA program and supplies because I came to the U.S. seeking asylum and can't apply for financial aid at this time. No one in my family is employed so I have no financial support available.

Meeting this need will help me because education is a primary focus. I deep in my heart feel that I need education. This will give me a good job and be able to survive.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Khalil fund this need.

Validated by Cassie from Survivors of Torture, International (What does this mean?)

I have known Khalil for the past year and a half working as his case manager at Survivors of Torture, International. I have been working with Khalil on gaining access to resources to support him in meeting his goal to obtain education and a career. Khalil is very motivated and has been expressing a desire to go to school to better his future since I met him. He has come upon many barriers due to not being able to access financial aid as an asylum seeker but has displayed resilience and dedication finding a program that he is able to enroll in despite these obstacles. Khalil has already started the enrollment process for a CNA program and now only needs the fees to complete this process and ensure he has the proper supplies to complete this program and obtain a CNA job. Khalil works hard now in customer service to be able to support his family with rent and basic needs but is unable to save additional funds for the tuition needed. I know that his receiving funding for his education and career will be well used and support him in successfully moving himself forward in gaining self sufficiency.
