Thank you for taking time to read my fundraiser.
I am Esme, from a small town in the Eastern Cape. I came to Cape Town a few years ago to continue studies and find employment. I was not able to pursue the studies because of financial constraints and not having a place of my own. I married and was blessed with a son Anovuyo Zanoyolo Ambrose Tindleni (21), who grew and turned out to be one of the most respectful, hardworking young men I know. He is a true inspiration of dedication, commitment and self-relience to me and his friends.
His hunger for education and building a legacy pushes him burn the midnight oil.
I am raising funds for him to continue his LLB studies at UNISA Parow.
His father passed on 5 years ago. This affected him emotionally, psychologically but he continued with schooling and got into higher education pursuing studies in psychology. He had to drop out because the trains were unsafe and unreliable; I could not afford to rent a flat closer to the university as well as the fees which were very steep. NSFAS did not help.
He got a job at a bank for three months. He earned accolades resulting in the manager offering him a higher position just after three months but he declined saying that he needed to go back to school. For him, education is key.
He registered for paralegal studies at CPUT while doing Software Development at WeThinkCode. Fortunately the latter is a free course for young people.
Since he was going to do an internship in Software Development he was accepted for 2nd year at UNISA for an LLB course. This meant that he could do his internship during the day and study after hours. Things were looking good then COVID 19 struck. He could not continue with WeThinkCode. He had also been robbed of his laptop and cell phone on his way from school.
He has done very well at UNISA while holding down a 12 to 16 hour delivery job in November and December to fund his studies ( he was not paid; employers sited "not breaking even"as the reason)
I could not pay the second semester due to illness. He owes R8000; plus he will need to secure the 2021 fees. It's R16000 maybe more in 2021 plus books.
Anovuyo is a hard-working and committed young man whose interest is in Criminal and Child Law. He feels that this combination is crucial because of the many crimes committed against children.
With your help, I am confident that he will realise his dream of becoming a lawyer. He will also be the first grand-child to have a degree.
The funds will allow him to focus on his studies rather than overworking himself in the hope of saving enough money for his studies.
Many young people in his position would have turned to drinking and drugs; abandoning their dreams for a better life. Here is a young man going all out to hold down studies while working hard long hours often without food the entire day.
Reaching my target will ease the financial burden on both of us. I already feel that I have failed him because I am unable to support him.
He puts his heart and soul into everything he does. He urgently needs financial aid to pay outstanding fees and to get him into school this year.
We will forever be indebted to you. Anyone who can support will not regret it.
Kindly share this fundraiser with your networks.
With many thanks
