Funding a one year Masters Degree in International Development at the Nottingham Trent University


I'm raising £25647.3 to enable me study for a Masters of Art in International Development so i can impact on the development of greater quality of life in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria


About me

My name is Desmond Dike from the impoverished Niger Delta Region of Nigeria. Earlier this year, I made a successful application to the Nottingham Trent University, United Kingdom to study for an MA in International DevelopmentI have set up this page to ask for the funding of my master’s program since i can’t afford to fund myself. I am a hardworking and motivated person, I also do a lot of charity through volunteering. At the moment I do volunteer at a project fundraiser for Little Big Heart Foundation, where I have mapped out strategies to help raise funds to support persons at internally displace camps in North East Nigeria

  • What are you doing and why? i want to study for a masters in international development at the Nottingham Trent University because i believe it has the perfect learning environment for the subject area. Again studying in the UK will give me the opportunity to do an internship with an organisation from the developed world where i would be giving an opportunity to learn from the field.  The study of international development will enable me build an understanding that can help eradicate poverty, reduce inequality significantly and era of global justice. 
  • Why is this important to you? This is very important to me because of the level of poverty, inequality, bad governance and environmental degradation in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria and around the globe, all these have also increase the level of insecurity. This Masters program will give me a better understanding on how to formulate strategies and policies to reduce, poverty, inequality, bad governance and environmental degradation around the globe, thereby making the world a better place
  • Why is it important to donate?  it is important to pledge as you will be helping to transform me into an international developer whose goal is to make the world a better place 

Where will the money go?  

The money realized from this campaign will be used for the funding of my Masters program, however if i realize more my budget, the extra funds will be channel to someone else who can’t afford to fund his/her education
