Rajan* is a 17-year-old teenager. He has big aspirations and loves anything related to IT, cyber security and robotics. He is currently doing his N-Levels and in future he wishes to enrol into an IT related course. His mother, Mdm Rama*, 53-years-old, is a Singaporean citizen who was living in Malaysia upon her marriage. They moved back to Singapore upon the death of Rajan’s father.
When they moved back to Singapore, they were homeless and was staying at a shelter. They now have their own rental unit. While Mdm Rama is a Singaporean citizen, Rajan is not. He is currently on Student Pass and he informed me that his Singapore citizenship application was recently rejected. He is currently appealing the rejection.
As Rajan is on student pass, his school fees are not subsidised and his mother struggles to pay for his school fees. Till date, Rajan has incurred an education arrear of S$4004.00 accumulated over many months as Mdm Rama is unable to pay his school fees of S$340 per month. Ray of Hope has earlier fundraised for Rajan’s N-Level fees and his school fees for the months of September 2019 – December 2019.
While Rajan will be able to complete his N-Levels due to kind donors, there is a possibility that he will not be able to receive his transcript as he has to pay off his outstanding education arrears first. This deeply worries Rajan as after his N-Levels he wishes to enroll into an IT related Higher Nitec course.
Rajan’s mother suffers from poor health. She has fibroid, which is a non-cancerous growth that develop in and around the womb. She also has varicose veins and swelling legs. Mdm Rama was working as a part-time cleaner however, she had to stop working completely in August this year after she had a fall at the MRT platform and is now weak and unable to walk without the support of a cane.
Give Hope – Help Needed
Ray of Hope would like to raise S$4,004.00 to clear off Rajan’s education arrears so that he is able to further his studies. Rajan is a well spoken and polite young man with a bright future ahead of him. He wishes to complete his education so that he will be able to better support his mother who is ill. Please help Rajan complete his education as education is the only way out of poverty!
