Summary

This microproject will change the life of H.A. and his mother by supporting him in his last year of studies in Psychomotricity at the Salesiana University. H.A. suffered from appendicitis and peritonitis at the beginning of his last year of studies and had to postpone his final coursework. By finishing this, his last year of studies, he will be able to find a good job to provide for himself and his mother and no longer live in a precarious situation.

Challenge

H. A. and his mother live in one room in El Alto. H. A.'s mother sells mutton in the street market, and H. A. paid for his first four years of study by working as a street vendor of earphones and other electronic accessories. However, H. A. fell ill with appendicitis and peritonitis and was forced to suspend his studies as he was very ill. The medical bills accumulated making it impossible for him to return to university. In one year he will finish his studies and become a professional.

Solution

The cost of one year of studies for H.A. is $US 856. Helping Hands will pay for H.A.'s university fees to guarantee his permanence in school for his last year. H.A. and his mother will continue to sell in the street markets to pay the rent and food expenses and H.A.'s transportation costs. H.A. and his mother will have a much brighter future and H.A. will contribute to the health and well-being of the community.

Long-Term Impact

H.A.'s profession in the health field will improve the lives of many people in the community. He will be able to work in sports, education and health centers to improve the health of many people, especially children. H.A.'s mother will also have support as she ages and both will break out of the cycle of poverty.
