Support orphan children in Ethiopia

Support orphan children in Ethiopia

HIV/AIDS pandemic is increasing by affecting the lives of children in Sub Saharan Africa. Despite the awareness being carried out, the HIV infection is still prevalent, high and evidently seen in urban and rural areas of Ethiopia. Children are the most vulnerable and many of them are orphaned or even infected by the HIV infection. This has tended to have lifelong effects on their development leading to a generation of no hope for tomorrow. The AIDS curse has created major problems and left number of the Ethiopia orphans behind. These orphans and their needs have over overwhelmed those who have tried to assist them. Most times they are left in the hands of relatives who are struggling to keep their own immediate families from starving. Subsequently, when the relative can no longer cope up, the orphans suffer most and in terms of education the guardians do care for their only legitimate sons and daughters, this has contributed to the increasing number of street kids roaming in the city and other towns. The rest of these OVCs end up in child domestic labour service and prostitution, other children are left in the hands of their grandparents who are aged and cannot contribute anything towards the well being of these orphaned children.                  In order to improve the situation of orphan and vulnerable children the International Friendship Association (IFA) initiated fundraising effort via on line go fund mechanism.  Therefore, there is need/ a call for local and international organizations/ communities/ groups/development partners/corporate and private individuals to contribute in order to improve the situation under which these children live and grow.        We intend to encourage families, communities and external parties to treat all orphans and other vulnerable children with respect ensuring that they are not treated as helpless victims but as actors in their own rights. Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!With just 1-click you can help a student cover school fees and expenses* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com?

To Return to Work; Need to do a One Year Course: Been Admitted: Can't Afford Fees

AdvancesHello everyone & welcome to this money pot! I am a . Zimbabwean political refugee in the UK. I haven't had any substantial job since coming here in 2000. I do cleaning and social care work through agencies. I'm a Mining profesional and am desparate to return to in my field of training. I have applied for similar roles here but haven’t been successful due to lack of recent experience. My ambition is to work for UK companies anywhere in the world where they have mineral exploration and/or mining projects. In order for me to achieve my aspiration, I need to refresh my knowledge as well catch up with the latest Advances in mining and exploration geology. I have applied for and been admitted for a one year course at the Camborne School of Mines. I applied for a loan to pay for the course fees from UK Student Finance but was unsuccessful. I require about £10 000 to pay the fees and associated course materials (including field trips) as well as accommodation and sustenance. If successful to take up the study offer, If I manage to secure funding, I will have to relocate to Camborne.  I have two teenage girls and a wife. We live with my cousin. My wife has mental health issues so she’s unable to work.  I will need to work week-ends and evenings in order to make ends meet. I would also have to leave my family behind because I can’t afford to provide for them without my cousin's input.. Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

Final tuition fee

Final tuition fee

Hello! My name is Zaid, an international masters student at the University of Leeds studying Data Science finishing in September 2019.I came here self-funded and until recently I thought I could cover all my expenses (around 30,000£ covered so far) but unfortunately, I have to face the fact that is not the case anymore, I have an outstanding balance of 540£ on my tuition fees,  university told me they will not release a proof of graduation until I clear all my payments.I have been offered a job as a Software Engineer near Manchester after completing my degree which I am really looking forward to, but if I do not pay my outstanding fees I would not be able to show the required proof of study and most likely lose the job offer.Due to my visa restrictions, I can only work up to 20 hours per week, which is barely enough for rent and food. My family was my source of financial support throughout this year but sadly recently, they had to redirect the funds in another direction because   of my sister's hospital bills.I am truly desperate and have tried everything I can think of before posting this. I really appreciate every help I can get no matter how little it is believe me it makes a different. I promise to pay it forward when I get the job that I have been thinking of for the past 6 months! Thank you for taking time reading my situation and again, I really appreciate every help I can get and thank you so much this is my last hope of finding funds and get my degree before it's too late!
