Education for an elderly fellow student CampaignHello everyone ! I'm starting a fundraiser for a fellow elderly student and a dear friend at our college.
Her name is Elaine Harck and she is a 65 year old widowed and retired teacher.
Both her and her late husband got Covid -19 back in 2020 and were both hospitalized and all her benefits(pension fund,medical aid, insurances and monthly income) ran dry.
As a retired teacher in South Africa,she is not eligible for getting a pension grant,so there's no income.
She got a job offer as a secretary at a law firm,however she didn't have the necessary qualifications. So she decided to study Legal Secretary. It's a 3-year course (18 months theory and 18 months practical) and she wil be doing her practicals at the law firm she got the job offer from.
She is also not eligible for NSFAS(National Student Assistance Scheme) so she has to fund her own studies and can't afford it.
Her humble request is assistance with the funding of the course(Diploma in Legal Secretary) she's undertaking.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
