Scholarship Testimonial

Dear The Give Forward, I would like to thank you for your generosity in giving me this scholarship. This past year has been extremely challenging for me to continue my university education due to Covid 19. I lost my mother in 2018. After that, I was the only one responsible for my three brothers and I have to solve my family’s financial problems. As a result I became hopeless and considered giving up on my degree. This sponsorship has given me the hope and motivation to complete my degree. My heartfelt thanks to the donor who sponsored the scholarship. Yours sincerely,Raj from Kandy
