With your support, I was able to cover not only my accommodation costs but also balance my other financial responsibilities. This assistance became the foundation upon which I could rebuild my life and dreams.

I feel that academic coaching has given me new tools for time management and productivity.

Final year coaching student

Having a laptop means I can finish my final year and qualify. I am a single parent working part time, so could not afford a new one. There is no way I would've been able to do my online learning or complete my last assignment on time had it not been for the help.

Semester A PC & Laptop Support student

Supporting me with a laptop brought about a huge change to my academic life. Before I was offered this laptop, I struggled so very much with joining zoom meetings as well as doing my assignments. This laptop was a game changer. A support I will never forget in my life.
