Personal message

Hi! I am Charmaine Stinge, from Cape Town, South Africa. I am 24 years old. I have Completed a bachelors degree in Psychology and Social Development, and recently graduated with an honours degree specializing in Social Development.

I am a passionate academic and an aspiring world changer! I am honoured that the University of Sheffield would select me for a masters in International Development. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think such an opportunity would come my way.

My deepest desire is to fight for social justice and positive social change. I have the amazing opportunity to go and study at the University of Sheffield this coming September, and I believe that the nature of this masters degree will bring me closer to seeing that desire fulfilled.

During my undergraduate years, I knew I had always wanted to further my studies and receive a masters degree. I decided to dream bigger than I ever have and to step out of my comfort zone and study abroad! However, I am unable to find funding despite expansive research and would love to see this dream come true! 

My passion is development, and how socioeconomic development can powerfully and positively impact a country and bring social justice and unity to its people! The masters degree at the University of Sheffield that I have enrolled for will expand my knowledge and skills so that when I come back to South Africa I can help bring social justice and positive social change in South Africa.

Due to the course starting in September, I need to reach my full target by the 31st of August!

The full amount required for the year is R800 000 (60 000 USD / 46 000 pounds)

Thus, I have three months or less to raise funds for my school fees: R395 000 / 22 600 pounds / 29 000 USD.

Accommodation (for the year): R121 000 / 7 000 pounds / 9 000 USD.

This is the first half of my campaign in which I hope to raise at least half of the money for my fees and cover my visa costs! Then will launch the second half of my campaign at a later time. 

Once I complete this masters program I aim to come back to South Africa and apply for a job in government in the department of Social Development. Long term, I believe this degree will set me up to bring social justice, empower the marginalized, allow me to positvely impact my country and it's people and help me serve my country.
