Raflene’s Educational Fund

Hello everyone. How do you do? First of all, thank you for taking a time to read my story. My name is Raflene Alvarado. I am 9 years old and I’m on the fifth grade and I love being in school. I live in Cebu, Philippines. I come from a very poor family. My mother works at a gasoline station whose earnings is not enough to feed me and my baby sister Anika who is 3 years old. But I’m still proud and love her for everything. My father is jobless because he could not find any job, though he had no good education like he did not finish 6th grade, he always tells me that education is one of the keys to a better life. I promised myself to study hard to get my family a better life. Just last 3 months, my father got sick and until now, I must help tend my father’s needs. Because of the Covid pandemie, things get more difficult for me. While my mom is at work, I have to take care both of my father and my sister Anika at home. Our little house at night is so dark because my parents could not afford to buy us a new lamp. Sometimes I have to go outside of the house where there is a street lamp to learn and read after I got my sister to bed to sleep. I asked my aunt and uncle to please find me some sponsors because there are many things I need for my studies and homeworks that my poor self cannot afford. My teachers required me to have a laptop and internet connection. I don’t have these because my mother can never afford such expensive things. My teacher said that she could not afford to come to our house everytime because I live so far away. That is why they need me to connect to them through Videochat Class. I hope that my little voice will be heard and that I get to have a chance to finish my schooling as I really do need your financial assistance-any amount will do. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. ❤️ God bless us all.
