An extremely capable and intelligent good friend and former classmate of mine with the potential to be a great force of good in the world has suffered violent abuse for some time. Stories of women suffering gender based violence is, unfortunately, far too common. However this friend who cannot be named here for safety reasons is not letting this stop her. She has always wanted to be a lawyer, and now more than ever, is pursuing that dream to be able to support people facing adversity regardless of their circumstances.
She is currently in Southern Africa and having to move around a lot staying with friends and keeping a low profile for her own security. Remarkably, whilst managing this challenging situation she has been able to secure several places at universities in the UK for the law conversion degree (General Diploma in Law) which is the first step in becoming a lawyer in the UK.
The purpose of this crowd fund is to raise enough for this brave women to be able to come to the UK and start her journey to become a lawyer. This is more than just supporting someone's education and helping them escape violence. This is a chance to support someone to transform themself into a professional with the capabilities to be force of good for the world, to help those in need and help make a fairer and safer society for all of us.
This fund will cover the tuition fees and contribute to the cost of living which would not be achievable under the working restrictions of a UK student visa. Any money raised over this amount will allow this amazing person to be able to spend more of her time focussing on becoming the best lawyer she can be.
