I would really appreciate some help with this situation. My significant other dropped out of high school when he was younger because he was severely depressed due to constant fights from his parents who eventually split up, so several years later he got an academic upgrade and now wants to do an advanced diploma.
To give some context, I met him online last year and haven’t seen him in person yet as we live in separate countries but we have plans to get married after we meet. We wanted to meet up this summer but thanks to the pandemic, that plan went out of the window because according to his government he doesn’t have a suitable place to quarantine upon return. In addition, we aren’t able to afford it anyway; he wasn’t able to get a job after a year of looking and I have been studying towards my last year of university.
The main issue however is that neither of us have the money to support his education. He wanted to do an advanced diploma but he needs CA$10,776/ £6,281 for the entire course in order to do that. He wanted to get a student loan for it but he isn’t able to get one in time for the beginning of the course because he lost his paystub and his old work place hasn’t gotten back to him with a new one in order for him to pay his taxes for last year. He needs CA$3,592/£2,092 by September in order to start the course so any donations would help a lot and would be greatly appreciated.
If he isn’t able to study this year then it delays when we can settle down by another whole year. I was feeling really down about not being able to see him this year, but now the tuition fees have become the main issue.
He is losing sleep over this and desperately looking to find a job but it doesn’t look like we are going to be able to save up that amount of money in time. He comes from a poor family so his family is unable to help towards the tuition. I am currently trying to get a job to help towards it but I haven’t had any luck so far and at this rate I might not be able to save up enough in time.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
