    Hi my name is Abraham Makuach Lual. Age of 31 years old from South Sudan. I am study Business Administration in Catholic University of South Sudan.I have finished my secondary education certificate in Kenya 2009. I have completed semester one in Catholic University Dec, 2016 and I was able to pay tuition fees for first semester on time. For second semester I do not know where to get money to pay tuition fees, because my parents do not have money to pay for my tuition fees in school. I have problems of tuition fees, accommodation, transport and hand out they are the main problem.
    I do really need someone who can me support me for paying my tuition fees in school. I want to pursue my dreams to graduate to be able to improve the living condition of my people since my country South Sudan is backward in education. I want to help also my parents to give them a better life and support their needs.
    Your consideration will be highly appreciated.
    Thank you
