Yasini “Yacn” Biggo of Tanzania is currently studying law at The University of Dar Es Salaam. In his last year for his bachelor's degree at the university, a forward and innovative thinker, Yacn is studying in hopes of becoming a successful lawyer who can help the woman and children of Tanzania, and of his village who are isolated in society. His time at the university has been funded by generous crowdfunding that has allowed him to continue his education without taking loans from his already impoverished village.
Yacn’s original goal was to provide for his family. He is the only son of five children and feels responsible for providing for his mother and four sisters. His parents rely on unreliable small business ventures, and Yacn wanted to give them a comfortable life. It was after he left his village in Tanzania, when he realized that he could also help his community. It started with his family, but now he aspires to help the women and children of Tanzania who are neglected. He hopes to help those who are denied their rights of owning property, inheritance, work and live in liberty but instead live in extreme poverty.
Our mission is to help fund his education. With the drive and ambition he has shown thus far, he will achieve amazing things in his community. The first step for Yacn is to finish his degree, so he can then turn his focus towards helping others. Every year has been a struggle to fund his education and other expenses. We hope to provide enough that the financial burden is lifted so he can better focus on his studies. Tuition, fees, books, and boarding—we hope to cover as much as we can. We would hate to see Yacn’s potential wasted because of the costly price of an invaluable education.
We believe in his ability to effect and promote progress within his community. If it were not for the donations received through Aura’s House and other generous individuals, he would not have completed these past years in University. He has come so far, and with your help we can assure he finishes what we all started together. With your donations we can help a great mind finish the first step in making a difference in the world.
Please consider sharing Yacn's fund-raiser or donating even 2 euros. If you wish to donate in USD$, CAD or GBP please send your donation directly through Paypal.com to [email protected]
using the gift to friends or family option to reduce fees and make a note that it is for Yacn. Without this funding he cannot continue his schooling. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Thank-you for reading and have a great day!
