Help me pay for school fees so I can become an electrical engineer!

I need financial help paying for tuition and school fees to learn electrical engineering.


I'm a hard-working student at the Reaps Vocational Institute. I'm from an impoverished family that can't help me with school expenses. I'm currently living with my family, about five miles from school.

I want to finish school and get a job as an electrical engineer. With good education and job, I can earn my way out of poverty. Then, I can help my family.

I need financial help paying for tuition and school fees. Since I live far from school, I need help with transportation to and from school. I also need tools to learn electrical engineering and use when I am able to get a job after school.

This help will get me through school and give me the tools I need for a bright future. It will also help me to pull my family out of poverty as well.
