My name is Foster Echia, and I am a child of divorce. My parents got divorced 11 years ago-- a period of unbelievable turmoil. After their divorce, life became quite difficult for my mother and my siblings. The divorce affected us financially because after some years later my dad was not taking care of us. My mother was the only source of income, and provider for the house. Hardship and stress became an everyday thing for her.
Fortunately, my grandmother intervened and decided to take care of me, so my mum could provide for my three younger siblings. Even that was not easy for her as a single mother. My grandmother, however, did well and provided everything for me to make sure I had a smooth education. It was then that I had the chance of schooling in the city, Kumasi. The old woman made sure I had the best education, and consequently, I studied with utmost passion in Junior High, and graduated with good enough grades to be admitted to Opoku Ware Secondary School.
After I graduated from high school in 2016, my grandmother started experiencing significant financial setback. She was sick, in addition, and had to afford both her health and my education.
Sadly, for me though, an unexpected thing happened and my grandmother died. Dealing with her death has been challenging, since she practically raised me for years. I am an upcoming freshman at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and
Technology (KNUST). It is my sincere
wish to attend college, but we are suddenly unable to provide the funds I'll need for outstanding tuition, books, and expenses.
The amount to be is $2,000.
Every amount is not too small to give. In
case you can't donate too please don't forget to share. Thank you and God richly
