    I greet you in the might name of Jesus Christ. I am a ugandan, Gisu by tribe and 23 years old. I finished my High School in 2009. I am a christian by religion and a servant of JESUS CHRIST.

    I humbly request your help that i get a scholarship to continue with my education to study the course of my dream. I have desired to continue but limited by finances.

    I humbly ask you to incline your ear to my humble request.

    For more information, you may contact my pastor;

    I pray to find favour before your eyes.
    Your positive response will not only be appreciated by me and my clan but also my God.
