My name is Lutho Nombewu, a 20-year-old, 1st-year student at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, I am an aspiring Civil Engineer studying towards a Bachelor of Engineering Technology
I am the first in my family to have a chance to obtain a Bachelor's degree, but due to financial misfortunes, that may not happen. I am struggling to raise the R82000 needed to cover my tuition and accommodation bill for 2019.
Coming from a single-parent headed home has been very difficult, my mother does not make enough money to be approved for a student loan and I was unfortunately even rejected by government aid.
Being a Civil Engineer has been my dream ever since a career exhibition I attended in Grd 11 and I never thought that financial circumstances would be the biggest blockage in my path to realise my dream.
Focussing in class has become a challenge because every time someone walks in it's like they are there to chase me out, and I thought that I would be enjoying my first year in University but happiness has become a distant memory
I am appealing to humanity out there to help me overcome this obstacle, all I wish for is to be able to go to school with less worry. If you have any way in which you can help me, please do, any help no matter how small will make a difference.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
*Funds raised will be transferred directly to CPUT*
