Let's get Kalpa to graduation

This fundraising campaign is to get Kalpa Vrikshika to her graduation. She is my cousin, finishing the last leg of her course in Kenya

She currently pursuing B.Sc in Applied Computer Technology in United States International University – USIU , Kenya, Nairobi and hoping to graduate on the 9th September 2017.

She has been known to be a hardworking student who despite her difficult financial times has pulled through to her final semester by her perseverance and will. Not even the sudden financial turbulence could shake her away from her love for academics. As her family moved back to India, she stayed put in Kenya to finish what she started and here she stands tall in her ambition.

Over the years she has sustained her education by scholarships, working within campus and the incredible support from her family friends. Unfortunately this semester, her scholarships are not available and her family friends have already contributed to other expenses that she has to cover over the semester.

This being the last lap has proven the heftiest for her. Her fee balance is amounting to 1,300 dollars equivalent to SHS 1,30,000.

She believes in the philosophy that finance should not be the reason for not pursuing ones dreams. This mindset has enabled her to be one of the best students in campus, involved in many social and community service projects, being one of two computer science students to attend the Harvard model United nations conference in Boston, awarded the “Most active tech lady of the year” consequently winning “The best hardware project” and being the former Miss USIU.

Her dream now is to graduate, it has always has been. She has worked hard with great integrity and virtue to be one among few to graduate with a magna cum-laude in her field of study.

Her story has been heard by many before and has been an inspiration to other young dreamers as herself. She hopes to start a student fund in the near future for students as herself.

Your help will make her story one of triumph! Funds are needed by Sunday 27/08/2017 so that the fee can be paid by Monday to the University. Please help her, as funds are needed to enroll for graduation and she has very little time.
