A twenty-year-old secondary school leaver is appealing for support from well-wishers to enable her enroll in higher institution of learning to pursue a medicine course.
Regina Jermano who sat secondary certificate of education in 2016 said that she aspires to pursue medicine in order to help her country but she is stranded at home due to lack of financial support to pay school fees.
Currently working at a boutique in Juba, Regina who stays with her stepmother after losing both her parents said she is not able to meet her scholastic needs.
“I am working at a boutique selling clothes and paid monthly hoping that I can save enough money to enable me enroll for medicine in any university but it is hard and we all know the current hardship in the country,” she narrated.
Regina told Juba Monitor that she has stayed at home for two years after completing senior four from one of the secondary schools in Juba.
“It has been two years since I sat and have not been able to raise money to pay myself. I am appealing to any Good Samaritan to support me in terms of school fees only, other requirements I can manage to get,” Regina appealed.
Regina is one of the thousands of bright students in the country whose dreams have been shuttered because of lack of school fees to further their studies.
For the weak hearted ones who cannot find jobs to do have ended up into prostitution as a way of making a living.
Yearly, thousands of students across the country complete their secondary schools but many of them do not get the opportunities to further their education in institutions of higher learning.
