Help Yacn pay his tuition for his 4th and LAST year of university. He aims to become a lawyer and advocate for the disadvantaged in Tanzania’s society and has come so far.

Aura’s House raised most of Yacn’s last year of tuition in April of 2015 (See project). However Yacn’s university still needs a few hundred dollars more to clear his bill and tuition is due in mid October. Please help Yacn reach his goal. He’s so close!

Our goal was to raise $645
$686 Raised. THANK YOU!

Yasini Biggo (26)

Aura’s House is proud to be hosting another special tuition project for Yacn Biggo who plans to use his law education for the betterment of Tanzanian society. Yacn has already successfully completed his sixth semester at The University of Dar Es Salaam for a BACHELOR OF LAW (LL.B) degree.  Aura’s House is attempting to raise funds for Yacn’s final year at The University of Dar Es Salaam.

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.”

From April 22 until May 12, 2015 The COM408 Media, Art, and Social Activism class at The American University of Rome successfully raised funds for Yasini’s 3rd year of education via our mirror project at Indiegogo.com. Read more about the class project.

Yacn was first introduced to Aura’s House Partner, Heather LaBonte of California, USA. Read more about how the two met.

We are so close to finishing off a fundraising project FOUR YEARS in the making. Please help Yacn complete his final year and graduate from university. He’s come so far! Every bit helps, even $1. If we go over our goal, any extra funds raised will go towards his one year program next year he needs to become fully certified as a lawyer in Tanzania.

Thanks in advance for your help!
