This project has finished.
Hello! My name is Theophilus Amo and I'm from Accra, Ghana!
I need to study in University so I can improve myself at work!
Currently, I'm working for TV Africa as a technician, camera operetor, maintenance... My field requires deep knowledge about Information Technology.
Recently, only graduates are being hired in my company. I'm afraid that if I don't graduate too I won't be able to keep my job.
Nowadays, technology is advancing, so study in University will help me to upgrade myself to fit the IT market across all fields.
Last year, I was able to pass the entrance examination for adults.
I just need the funds to pay the entrance and school fee. I want to study in Ghana Technology University College, that is near from my home so I won't need to pay an extra accommodation.
It's a 4 years degree, so if I do my best I will graduate in 2022!
My monthly income is around $100.
My family's situation is not favorable, so they can't help me. My mum is very old and my dad passed away a while ago.
I have 5 siblings who live in the countryside. They have their own families and their economic situation is worse than mine.
In order to pay the tuition fee I approached my bank to ask for a loan, but they said I'm not qualified because my monthly income is less than they require.
I've in total $500 I saved with a lot of effort, so I just need another $500 to be able to pay the entrance fee on time!
As soon as I collect enough funds I will pay the entrance fee. The semester has already begun but I've talked to the University to be able to join in October.
If I can't do it on time I will try to ask the University to extend my deadline.
Once I graduate I would like to keep gaining experience and make my own business, which is not decided yet. I know that if I manage to go to college a brilliant future will be waiting for me.
I would appreciate from the heart all your collaboration. Thank you very much!
