Imagine my life if I can obtain a degree that will enable me to use the acquired knowledge to provide technical assistance in the field of IT, Information Systems and Computer Science in general. I want to become a reliable person in the computer science field in my country where unemployment is so common. I can do it, but I need a little help from you.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There is high unemployment rates in my country which leads to a small percentage of people being able to gain enough money to pay for their fees and look after the family. Your help will provide me access to higher education and utilize it immediately. Despite that, education is so very expensive and people cannot manage to even attend school. Being given the opportunity to obtain this would be amazing.

How will this project solve this problem?

Getting a Computer Science Degree will help me utilize the learned skills to help the computer science industry in my country. It will open the gates to better education as I will be able to pay fees for my children and other relatives. It will also provide a room for others for I am planning to have a computer service center once I finish my studies. I will employ a number of young people to gain better knowledge in the industry.

Potential Long Term Impact

I will be able to help in the development of dynamic websites as many companies do not have websites in the country. I will also be able to solve complex statistical problems. Database development is also another challenging chapter in the country as many projects are using manual systems. With all these and other skills, the community will benefit new and advanced Information systems techniques which I hope to be able to provide.

Today, many millions of people cannot access higher education due to financial, availability, or societal constraints. Tuition rates are skyrocketing worldwide. UNESCO stipulates by 2025, 98 million individuals will be unable to attend university because there won't be enough places at existing universities. There is an online tuition-free solution - University of the People. Help 45 more students improve their lives by getting degrees in business administration or computer science. project reportread updates from the field
