Cursory: Ernest AntwI, a 200-level University student is appealing for financial support in order to pay his school fees. He sells sachet water and drinks on the streets of Accra in order to earn some money. The young man said that he hopes to stop selling on the streets, so he can focus solely on his academics.
The ambition of a young Ghanaian man, Ernest Antwi, which is to complete tertiary education is now highly unlikely as money to pay for his fees and also to see him through school has become a major problem.
Speaking with reporters, the level 200 student of Accra Technical University currently studying Building Technology confessed that working to pay his school fees and also take care of his siblings has proven to be a very difficult task.
The 24-year-old who currently sells sachet water and drinks on the streets of Accra said that his expectation of raising enough money to afford his fees has not been met.
“I am struggling to take care of myself and also my siblings. I decided to sell pure water on the streets in order to survive and use some of the money for my fees but that has not worked”
Ernest hopes a benevolent individual, group or organization comes to his aid and support him financially with his education, stating that he will forever be grateful to them. At the moment, he needs ₵2000 (~ $165 or N76,000) for his school fees and an additional ₵1500 for hostel fees.
“I am looking for help, someone who will pay my fees because as of now I haven’t paid my school fees, and I am hot”
“if I will get a scholarship, I will stop selling pure water because it affects me a lot, I get tired anytime I return from work,” He continued.
Benevolent individuals and groups can contact Ernest at +233 548 496 245 for more inquiries.
