Fulfilling a Dream: Supporting a Future Kenyan Doctor


I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to you today with a heart full of dreams and aspirations, hoping that you can help me turn these dreams into reality. My name is Kennedy, and I am a 19-year-old student from a humble background in Kenya. I am reaching out to you in the hope that you can be the beacon of hope in my journey to fulfill my lifelong dream of studying medicine at the University of Nairobi.

Firstly, I would like to express my profound gratitude for taking the time to read my letter. Your willingness to listen to my story means the world to me, and I sincerely hope you will consider joining me on this remarkable journey.

I am proud to share that I achieved an outstanding result of ‘A’ in my Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination, which opened the doors to a place at the prestigious University of Nairobi’s School of Medicine. This admission represents the realization of a dream I have held since I was a child, inspired by the desire to make a positive impact on the health and well-being of my community and beyond.

To make this dream a reality, I need your help, as my family’s financial situation is very challenging. The cost of pursuing a medical degree is substantial, and I have calculated the expenses for the entire seven-year program to give you a clearer picture:

  1. Tuition Fees: Approximately $6,426 per year
  2. Accommodation: $1,350 per year
  3. Food and Daily Expenses: $1,860 per year
  4. Textbooks and Study Materials: $1,520 per year
  5. Medical Supplies: $1,200 per year
  6. Transportation: $2,571 per year
  7. Miscellaneous Expenses: $1,000 per year

Total Annual Cost:$13,356

Total Cost (Seven Years): $93,493

Over the course of seven years, the total projected cost for my education would be $93,493. While this figure may seem daunting, I remain steadfast in my determination to excel and give back to my community. With your support, I believe that I can achieve this dream and, in turn, contribute to improving healthcare and saving lives in Kenya and beyond.

I want to emphasize the emotional aspect of this journey. Every day, I am reminded of the sacrifices my parents have made to provide me with the opportunities I have today. I have witnessed the struggles of my community, where access to quality healthcare is a luxury. I am driven by a sense of responsibility to use my education to make a difference and alleviate the suffering of those in need. Your assistance would not only change my life but also transform the lives of countless others who will benefit from my future medical practice.

I humbly ask for your support in funding my education. Your generosity would be a gift beyond measure, and I commit to working tirelessly to honor your trust and investment in my future. Whether you choose to contribute partially or fully, every bit will make a profound difference.

Thank you for considering my plea and for potentially being the key to unlocking a brighter future not just for me, but for countless others whose lives will be touched by my future in medicine. I am available for any further discussions, and I would love to share more about my aspirations and journey with you.

With deep appreciation and anticipation,
