I have been so impressed with the integity in what SJTFC is doing! I have learned about various African women that my money has gone to help change their lives, give them the opportunity they wouldn't otherwise have for a fabulous degree, and future career in pharmacology. Also, SJTFC helped a Nigerian immigrant woman I know personally get her certification in health admin. She learned that people care. SJTFC is doing great work.

A deep and touchy appreciation to Saint Jude tuition fund

It has been Many years of blessings for me and my family, since I miraculously fell into your Goodwill program. Before I know about you, I use to hear about Goodwill organisations, that assist needy or underprivileged people around the world.
To me it was like a Mith until I lived that mystery myself. Saint Jude tuition fund has gave more than I ever expected including, care, love confidence, hope, to dream bigger than myself and support me and those I care for, as well as funding many both online and physical tuitions for me to improve my intellectual capacity, including an English course I am currently busy attending at Durban Language center that could allow me an admission to any required institution to study further
I Sandrine Djamila Ingabire hereby expressing my humble appreciation to the long standing Support to me personally and my family. Be it, Emotionally, spiritually and mentally I have truly found a Spirit of Humanity in Saint Jude Tuition fund Corporation.

God bless Saint Jude tuition fund and all her Stuff

This organization does very well with genuinely helping people in need. The only way I could see this organization do better is if they had more grants so they could help more people.

St Jude Tuition Corp is a wonderful organization that is working to help so many here as well as around the globe. I have witnessed a member of this organization go above and beyond to help Sudan refugees. Their story is amazing and inspiring and their lives would not have been able to be positively impacted had it not been for St Jude! Great organization, wonderful volunteers!!!

ST Jude Tuition Fund is providing the much needed support to provide vital education to women who have no means to access education, otherwise, and are facing insurmountable obstacles in their lives. Their only improvement would be to be able to provide more financial support.

This organization recently set up a scholarship fund at Cochise College for first generation students to pursue a degree or certificate after high school graduation in the fields of science, technology, engineering, math, or medicine. Cochise County, Arizona, has a dismal track record for students after they leave high school. We're excited about expanding the post-secondary opportunities!

It is an excellent foundation to help all women with their higher education; Personally I am eternally grateful to the foundation for supporting me with the study material that I need to be able to continue with my university, especially Mrs. Kathryn Williams, for the great work she does by raising money to support several women with their education. It is already worthy to admire the person who started with this great foundation,
thanks to that several women we can conclude with our academic studies.

Saint Jude Tuition Fund Corporation is a fantastic story of success, compassion and commitment to those seeking a better life. I am so moved at the courage of the recipients of this organization, leaving their homes to seek a better life through education. This organization is in need of further funding. Please go to the website to learn more about the mission and those recipients who are still in need of further funding to finish their education. Even small donations add up and make a difference.
Your generosity does not go unnoticed. The recipients are benefiting as will you; God sees the great work that Kathy is doing and others who are helping those who are less fortunate.

WOMEN'S VISIBILITY THROUGH EDUCATION:
Hello supporters of women's education, i am cicilia yobu wolyan duku. this is a brief story through my education and how saint Jude tuition fund cooperation is trying to help me!
I am a south Sudan national and a single mother of around six years old daughter who is currently living with my mum as refugees in Uganda.

In 2011 as i was for my high school (secondary), i got an attack and was raped . hence; after some weeks when test was carried out i was confirmed pregnant. there was no option for me to go back to school at that moment.but because of my strong desire to see women and girls being respected, there rights being protected and there is no violence against them, i had to put more effort to continue my education though in pains. hence; i tried and managed to finish my high school in 2013.

In 2014 as i was struggling to find help for myself in-order to pursue my goals in my education, i got a chance of scholarship offered by our government of central equatorial state Juba south Sudan to come and study in India. hence; i am currently in India. but the scholarship felt may be due to the crisis in country or some factors still not understand.

Therefore; in 2016 as the students have stayed for two years without money being paid to the university, the students were stopped to joined second year till if anyone will be able to pay him/herself. hence; as i was struggling, in July 2016 i got saint Jude tuition fund cooperation organisation. which support women's education. for the organisation believe that educating women and then there children later is the better way to peace in the world. this is indeed true because the first thing and the first person children get to know are mothers. when they are educated then it become easy to educate the children too.

I presented my matters to the board manager of sjtfc.org. Mrs Kathryn Williams, initially she never gave me any assurance of what they can do to help me. she just gave me word of hope. but i appreciate them so much together with her co-workers. because they tried as much as possible to see into it that i am safe and my education continue. my college fees is 3000$ per year but i'm so thankful to sjtfc.org. for much effort and struggle in funding for my education. they have struggled to pay half of my current year (second year) college fees i also appreciate sjtfc.org. not only of the funds but also for the comfort and the courage they do give me particularly Mrs Kathryn Williams the the ultimate person in connection with. she gave me more courage and i am more stronger than before.

Hence; women's education is the key to the global world because women are the eyes' openers of the children. educating them is empowering the children, hence; empowering the world literacy.

Hope we all join to support and see the changes in the children.
thanks.
stay all bless.

The work of SJTFC isn't just "giving someone a fish for a day". It's educating and teaching dedicated young women to "fish for for a lifetime".

At a time when the needs are so great helping women through education and training positively impacts their families, communities & ultimately the world.

SJTFC does this with passion, commitment and integrity. I cannot recommend this organization and Kathy Williams enough.

I have been working with Kathy Williams and the Saint Jude Tuition Fund Corporation to help get funds to the refugee women that have found Kathy online. These women have shared their stories on the website along with the beautiful photos of them and their families. How blessed we are in America to be able to help these people who are in need. They are so deserving of a better life than what they left behind in their war torn home countries. They have shown what true grace is. They appreciate anything that has been forwarded to them, whether it be of monetary value or daily prayers. Their precious lives have been made better through the efforts of the Saint Jude Tuition Fund Corporation under the selfless direction and energy of Kathy Williams. No challenge is too large; she has an incredible attitude to get the work done in the most efficient manner.
Please make a donation to the Saint Jude Tuition Fund Corporation to keep the great work going to educate those who would not otherwise have the opportunity for higher education.

This organization has helped people here in the United States, in India, and in South Africa. They are working hard to keep a South Sudanese woman in Pharmacy school, and have helped a Rwandan refugee in South Africa to be able to take classes online. A recent imigrant from Nigeria needed a little help with some fees to complete her certification, and SJTFC was able to help. These volunteeers are working hard to "be the source of change".

I've worked along side non-profit organizations for close to 25 years. When I met Kathy about a month ago, my first impressions were " This is an amazing woman with a lot of talents" willing to help anybody in need. Saint Jude is doing incredible things for people who would probably have no other chance for changing their situation. Two thumbs up for me!!!! Keep going Kathy!!!! Your doing awesome things!!!!!!

Kathy Williams has a passion for service and I have no doubt that this organization will achieve great things and help many who are in need. Even in it's first years of existence a number of very worthy projects have been accomplished. I would highly recommend contributing to and participating in Kathy's venture.

I've worked with Kathy Williams for many years, and always appreciated her balance of ability, positivity, humility, determination, and impact. I support St Jude in part because of her leadership, as well as the organization's track record helping refugees and families overseas and in the US find safety and education. The need is particularly acute for women with children escaping violence, and Kathy has honed in on this as a key opportunity for generational and societal improvement. And since so much of the work is beset not only by financial considerations, but also by logistical and bureaucratic challenges, Kathy's skill and determination are uniquely suited to the mission. Thank you, Kathy and St Jude Tuition Fund!

I've known Kathy for just a few months, but her passion for global education is evident in her daily life. She is diligent in supporting those in dire straits who have reached out for help. The volunteers in her organization do not take salaries; all the money raised is used to help find resources to educate people in need of assistance. Her focus on women and their children's education reaches down to the very core of what is needed to keep our world community thriving, healthy and productive. What could be more important than that???

I have known and worked with the folks at Saint Jude Tuition Fund Corporation for some time and find them to be very conscientious professionals dedicated to their mission and demonstrating what it means to serve others. They maintain an extremely high level of integrity and character and don't lose site of their objective to help those that really need a helping hand in these times of turmoil and persecution.

They tirelessly work for their cause and funding goes to those that need it, helping those less fortunate around the world.

I wholeheartedly endorse this organization and the fine work they do...Please support them!
