Review for Saint Jude Tuition Fund Corporation, Benson, AZ, USA
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.
stay all bless.
