Help Blessing become a Lawyer

Personal message

My name is Zvikomborero Chiwawa. I'm 19 years old and originally from a small town in Zimbabwe called Guruve. I recently completed high school and my dream is to go to Rhodes University in Grahamstown in February 2020 (which has already accepted me as a student) to study law.

My reason to sign up for BackaBuddy is to raise money for my tuition fees. It is quite a challenge to get sponsorship or bursaries as a Zimbabwean refugee in South Africa. Studying law has been my dream since primary school. My love for law grew from debate classes throughout high school and also my passion for standing up for the rights of others and being the voice to those, whose rights have been or are being violated.

Being able to reach my target funds would not only allow me to realize my dream but would also relieve the financial pressure from my parents. I'm the eldest with three younger siblings, all attending primary school and one, who has to attend an expensive special needs school.

I have already been accepted at Rhodes University and managed to pay the admission fees from my waitressing job. The tuition fee is about ZAR 55 000, student residence fees costs are another ZAR 30 000.  I am busy looking for a part-time job in Grahamstown to finance my living costs.

Funds raised will be transferred into my bank account.
