Dear Friends,

I am privileged to have been offered a place at the prestigious London School of Economics and Political Science, to study an Msc degree in African Development; a goal that I have been working towards for the past four years. During this time, I have been working tirelessly to develop sustainable solutions for established small scale traders and business people in low-income areas. I am passionate about economic development and I am particularly keen on  finding solutions to one of the greatest impediments to development- poverty and inequality. My interest in this particular field has developed over the years as a result of my experiences working with vulnerable groups in urban informal settlements as well as rural areas.It is through  interactions with vulnerable communities that I have been able to work with various self-help groups in providing training in business enterprise and establishing income generating activities;while empowering the groups to run and manage the enterprises effectively, thus maximizing profitability  and in turn sustainability.

This course will monumentally increase my capacity to fulfill my dreams by providing an opportunity to acquire a combination of knowledge, skills and networks that would enable me to effectively carry out these plans

Though I have been able to raise a portion of my fees and living costs from various sources, I have not managed to raise the full amount- Ksh. 4,970,000 (£ 35500). Thus, I am appealing to friends, family and well wishers to help me raise  Ksh. 800,000 (£5700) for my accommodation fees.

I greatly appreciate your support and good will.


Faith Mwachinga.
