Conservation Study Fund

Personal message

Every little girl has a dream for when she grows up, some want to be a princess some a teacher and some a firefighter or policewoman. From the age of 5, I knew exactly what I wanted, I wanted to save the world. As I grew up I saw how that could be challenging and found that my passion lies in saving, preserving and protecting the environment, and I found that what I wanted was to be a Conservationist. I came close. Very close. I worked hard at school and was immediately accepted to study conservation at the Technical University of Tshwane in Pretoria South Africa, where I was also in the top of my class for most of my subjects. Sadly I was unable to complete my studies due to a tragedy in the family which led to huge financial problems. I saw that my father would no longer be able to support my dream and get my sister through high school and my brother to finish his degree and I decided to start working and try to pay for my studies myself. Unfortunately, that was 8 years ago and to date, I have not been able to raise the funds to complete my studies. This has been my dream and passion since I was a little girl. I have finally found myself in a place and position where I have the time and resources to complete my studies the only thing keeping me back is the funding. My request is simply for every person who has had a dream to recognize their passion in me and to help me get a hold of my dream so I can pass that on to all the children in rural areas who dream as I do! Share in my dream with me, make dreams come true in the African Bush where so few have the chance.

I am hoping to raise funds to complete my studies for National Diploma in Nature conservation after having dreamed of doing it since I was 5 years old. I studied for two years but after tragedy in my family I opted to give up my studies and start working to alleviate the financial pressure on my family.
