Funding medical studies for Salim

Funding medical education for a talented, ambitious and hardworking young Kenyan student

Focus is to help a young Kenyan to a future in his country, in which he is very determined to make a difference.

Background
I (Maria from Denmark) have been knowing Salims family for the past 17 years. During this period I have seen the children grow into some lovely, ambitious young men. Salim is the second born, now 22 years old. Since I retired last year, it has become difficult for me to finance the rest of his education, so I am applying for some assistance.
 
Personal profile
Salim is the son of Rama and Alice. They live in a village about 25 km south of Mombasa.

Already as a very young child Salim proved to be very methodical, empathic, helpful, kind - and extremely interested to learn. He has successfully completed his college stay with fine marks followed by a strong desire of studying medicine.

Education
Salim has currently finished the first year of the medical study in Kagamega, Mount Kenya University. The remaining period is 3 years with the possibility to specialize afterwards. http://www.mku.ac.ke/ ).

Price estimate for completing the education
Per year the estimate based on expences for the first year has been:

-        Purchase of books, partly for the entire study
-        Cookware
-        Mattress
-        Mosquitonet
-        Food etc.
-        Bed
-        Table
-        Chair
-        Uniform
-        Shoes
-        Laptop
-        Costs of transport 3 x year
-        University


Salim is very greatful for any donations and hopes to assist his family, when he gets a job.

Salim has the opportunity of starting medicine semester in september 2017 where first rate of the tuition needs to be paid.
