    Hi my name is Abraham Makuach Lual. Age of 31 years old from South Sudan. I am studying  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 December 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 have request school to give me time to look for money while continue study semester 2. I have told by the institution to clear the tuition fees before final examination.I need your assistance to finish the remaining Semesters.  
    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
    Lual Abraham Makuach
