Hello! My name is Ropafadzo Ndlovu. I am a 21 year old Zimbabwean female and I am currently headed towards my final year in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. It was hard to set this account up but given the situation, we were left with no choice.

A few years ago both of my parents were retrenched from their jobs due to the economic crisis that Zimbabwe is facing. Despite this, my parents managed to get me through my first and second years of university but last year things became a little more difficult. In October 2016, my father who had been responsible for my education was diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome which caused him to be paralysed from the neck down. He is recovering but the time for him to be able to walk or move his arms could take up to 12 months.
Our family's situation has left us in a debt of $7000 from my third year and I need an extra $3000 to register for my final year. Unfortunately the potential donors that I had to sponsor my schooling had to pull out due to other financial commitments. This has now given me only 2 weeks to raise the money that is needed for me to go back to school and finish my final year.

I love my university, the people I’ve met and everything I’ve learnt. Besides the devastation it will bring, transferring universities would mean added years and added costs. I work hard academically and have maintained an average above 70% in order to make my parents proud. They would do anything for my education and it pains them that they are unable to right now. I want to be able to finish my degree and help them support my 2 younger sisters, Tinevimbo and Ruvarashe who are 18 and 7 years old respectively.

In the meantime, I am also fighting for bursaries and scholarships but I cannot do so without my results which will only be released once my debt is paid. Some bursaries have been hard to come by as an international student so we would appreciate any help we can get.
If you would like to loan us money (which we would gladly pay as soon as we can) or pay directly to the university, get in touch with me privately. You can also remain anonymous if you would like. Just one more year!
Thank you for your time, support and encouragement

GOOD NEWS!! As of a few minutes ago, I finally registered as a fourth year Mechanical Engineering undergrad. I cannot even begin to explain what the past 2 weeks have been like. Thank you to the people who walked with our family in support and prayers. The goal seemed really far initially but through the name of Jesus, all things came together. We are still on the journey of finishing of the fees for the year but for now I get to continue learning. I just pray that one day I am able to give the way you have given me.

God bless you,
Ropa

Initially this journey was hard but now I've become a voice compelled to speak positively. I've constantly shared my story and in that I can feel that no matter what, I'm coming out stronger. Thank you for the love.

I am constantly expressing my gratitude every time I bump into people who have read my story. It's a fight to keep it together but people have shown love. We have received quite some money offline and our target looks closer than it did last week. Thank you. May your generosity return in abundance
