Aura’s House is proud to be hosting a project for a young man named Yacn Biggo who plans to use his law education for the betterment of Tanzanian society. Yacn has already successfully completed his first year at The University of Dar Es Salaam for a BACHELOR OF LAW (LL.B) degree and is currently in his second year. Unfortunately, if his tuition is not paid by the end of November (late December the very latest), his education will come to an end. In order for Yacn to continue to attend The University of Dar Es Salaam, he will need your help.
When Aura’s House Partner, Heather LaBonte, asked Yacn why he wanted to study law, he replied “‘To become a successful lawyer who can help poor Tanzanian woman and children who are a vulnerable group and isolated in our society. Most of the time they are denied their rights, for example the right to own property, inheritance, marital issues, right to work, and their liberty. I choose to study law because it’s easy to help people by knowing law especially vulnerable groups.”
We aim to raise a total of $1,999 to fund the following elements of Yacn’s education: tuition, fees, books, housing, meals, and stationery.
