10Ghc for Timothy, The Brilliant but Needy Student who Secured Admission to Study Computer Science at SDD UBIDS.

Growing up in the Upper West Region with wide exposure in rural life, I thought I had seen it all on poverty, the appalling state of rural education etc till UDS posted me to Kichichanbuni in the Saboba district as part of my Third Trimester Field Practical Program (TTFPP) in 2016.

The community had no electricity, no school, no clinic and endemic poverty. We settled to work on our report.Teenagers interested in education had to commute to the next community, as developers, we were inspired at how the young ones in that community were interested in education yet had no school. We helped them out with studies but placed special priority on the Candidates scheduled to write their BECE in May.

As an extrovert, I had a strong rapport with community members even after we left, they kept calling me. I received a call from Timothy, one of our students informing that he passed his examination and was admitted at Bimbilla Senior High School to pursue Science. I was amazed, seriously we least expected them to pass that well. Timothy was their best student. I immediately took liking of him, he has potentials. I supported when I could, I was still a student with little resources.I monitored the growth of Timothy during his Senior High School period.

Timothy and the deep love and affection the community had for me necessitated my plans to give back to the community. Immediately I completed the University in 2019 and founded Necessary Aid Alliance our second self-funded project was in that community which saw us donate reading and learning materials with a desktop computer to help the state of education.

Fast forward in 2019, Timothy completed his WASSCE with one of the best results from Bimbilla S.H.S, he has been on the hustle to raise money to fund his tertiary education. I am deeply concerned; I trust he has a great future ahead of him. I have successfully secured admission for him at SDD-UBIDs formerly UDS Wa to pursue a program in Computer Science.

We are required to pay an amount of gh₵ 1,621 for his Tuitiongh₵ 600 for AccommodationIt is true that Everybody needs somebody sometimes, Timothy needs our support.

If successful, Timothy will be the first from his community to hold a diploma in Computer science.

Please let us support to raise enough money for him realize his dream of becoming a computer scientist.

No amount is too small.
