Francesca is a single mum who's in Montreal on a student permit– she moved here to build a better life. She's passing through a tough period and she needs help. She's working hard and friends and family are helping but thers's more to be done.

Francesca is a single mum from Italy who has moved to Montreal to build a better future for her son Rocco and herself. Francesca speaks four languages, has a degree in interior design and is a driven individual and a caring mum. She got her student permit recently and is attending a college for graphic design. She had financial aid promised to her but that fell through. To save money, she has had to pull Rocco out of daycare and give up her apartment to move in with her mother and stepfather who have stepped in to provide her and Rocco with room and board but don’t have the means to help her pay for school. 

Immediate need: Francesca has to pay her school fees for the first session to attend college – her student permit that allows her to stay here depends on it. The total owed for the first session and urgent needs is $5400. The payments will be spread over 6 instalments of $900. A group of us have pledged enough financial support to make her first payment. Francesca is looking for a job so she can finance her remaining 3 sessions.

What you can do: Please give what you can – every little bit counts. And share this call for funds with people in your network. Francesca thanks you and so do we. We are so happy to build a supportive community that is willing to help one of our own in her time of need.
