My Beloved Community (LEAF Academy)Hi everyone,

 

My name is Rafiullah Faqiri, currently studying at an international boarding high school, LEAF Academy in Bratislava, Slovakia. I attend a four-year program (2016 2020), but the scholarship, which covers the vast majority of my costs, officially ends in 2019.

 

In order to continue with my final year of studies at LEAF Academy and graduate, I am obliged to pay the vast majority of my tuition and other costs for the 2019/2020 academic year. Unfortunately, my family cannot afford this sum, but I am convinced that successful graduation from LEAF Academy will be an important step towards the future where I can make a difference in the world.

I come from Afghanistan, where people including myself suffer from violation of human rights, lack of safety, education and bear the burden of fear at every moment. That is why I decided to join numerous civic organizations which allowed me to fight for the less fortunate and give them hope. This was the main reason I came to LEAF Academy - to increase my qualification and use it to improve the lives of people in Afghanistan and around the world.

 

However, when I started at LEAF Academy three years ago, I struggled a lot. Fitting into a new community and culture, being away from home, and keeping up academically presented a major challenge. Soon, through hard work and perseverance, I was able to become a valuable member of the community, improve my academics and go on to pass several college-level AP classes.

 

Over the past three years, not only did I take the opportunities that were presented to me, but I also actively sought new ways to expand my horizons. This includes moderating our weekly assembly, working on social entrepreneurial projects, participating in Model European Parliament and more. Through these, I was able to meet like-minded individuals and become a business developer for our start-up, which produces an AI-based chatbot that provides and improves information services for educational institutions or enterprises, including our school. That is why after three years and so much learning, I would love to attend my final year in order to continue doing amazing things and making a difference in my community

To do all this, I am in need of your help to pay my school tuition. I would really appreciate if you could consider helping me improve this region by contributing a small amount of money. Even if you are unable to donate, I’d like to thank you for taking the time to read this.

 

Love and success,

Rafi Faqiri
