University fees

Helping people to be independent, so they can improve their own life

24 year old Jean fled Cameroon to escape persecution and settled in Johannesburg, living on money sent by his father, a taxi driver in Paris.

But a fatal road accident tragically cut short both his father’s life and Jean's income.

Fellow Cameroonians took pity on him and gave him food and a bed in their overcrowded flat in Braamfontein. And, Jean has since found a job as a dish washer in an Italian restaurant.

While he is grateful to be earning the money to survive, like most young men, Jean has plans for his life. He already has a baccalaureate in Finances from Cameroon, and has been accepted at the University of Johannesburg to study for his B.Com Finance next year.

But finding the money for fees is a challenge.

Jean needs R 26 000 for his first year. He's managed to save R6000 himself, and a priest from the Netherlands also contributed R6000 – leaving a shortfall of R14000.

Please help if you can, by contributing online now.

Sometimes life is just so unfair ... despite being bright and hardworking, the chance to study for a better life remains just out of Jean's reach.

Unless someone like you will help. Your gift of any amount will make a difference, and will be paid directly to the university on Jean's behalf.

Let us help this young man get on his feet so that he can go on to do the same for others.
