Tuition for Shiraz

Total Cost - USD 1,387
Still Needed - USD 0
Funded - USD 1,387

Shiraz, 25, is an impressive young woman. She lost her father at the age of eight, and his death had a profound impact on her. Shiraz became very introverted and had trouble acclimating to school. During high school, Shiraz never really found her place. She moved from school to school and eventually she graduated. She completed a full year of National Service and held down odd jobs in order to support herself and help her family.

Shiraz’s mother works as a kindergarten assistant, and the family has always struggled financially.  A year and a half ago, Shiraz took out a bank loan in order to help a friend in crisis. She is now steadily repaying the loan and trying to get back on her feet.

Recently, Shiraz began a bookkeeping course. Eventually, she would like to become a payroll accountant and achieve financial independence. While studying, she is working at a supermarket in order to cover her daily expenses.

There were so many crossroads where Shiraz could have fallen off the path, but she was always determined to build a stable future for herself. If she could get help covering her tuition, she would be well on her way to fulfilling her dreams.
