Why do I need iSTEPup?
I had to quit my studies in 2018 because I didn’t have enough money to pay for my final year. I was obliged to volunteer to keep my knowledge, and I don’t have time for a job to pay for my studies. I also take care of my mother and brother. I want to become a doctor because that way I can give my fellow countrymen a chance for a better life and help people. My dream is to become a pediatrician later.
I met Allen in Tanzania in 2017. He is a motivated person without sufficient funds to study medicine. I started a fundraising for him already before iSTEPup was founded ( https://www.gofundme.com/studyforallan ). Via iSTEPup I hope to support the whole study in a sustainable and transparent way. I will help coordinating und updating this webpage.
