Fees and Living Expenses
The Total Sum of the tuition fee comes to 3,996 Euros, equivalent to 3,54,245.4 INR. (1 Euro = 88.65 INR at the time of creating this campaign). Out of which I got a 35% scholarship which comes to 1,398.6 EUR, equivalent to 1,23,985.89 INR. (3,996-1398.6= 2,597.4 EUR). So I need to raise 2,597.4 EUR which is 2,30,259.51 INR.
The total sum of the living expenses required by the University or the Dutch Government is 950 EUR a month or 11,400 EUR a year, which is 10,10,610 INR. Out of which the university awarded me 925 EUR for 10 months (1 Sept 2021 to 30 June 2022) which comes to 9,250 EUR, equivalent to 8,20,012.5 INR. Now I need to raise 2,150 EUR which is equivalent to 1,90,597.5 INR.
There are other fees and expenses that I need to raise too, so this is what is reflected in the goal amount:
MVV/Residence Permit cost: €192
Living Expenses (After Scholarship): €2,150
Tuition Fee (After Scholarship): €2,597.4
Basic Health and Liability Insurance (1 year): €500
Thesis Correction (on average): €500
Airfare (Round Trip): €750
Total: €6698.4, or 5,93,813.16 INR
I have to transfer the MVV cost, the living expenses, and the tuition fee by July 1, 2021.
I thank God that I have been awarded a place and a scholarship to study His word in the Netherlands. It is all through God’s blessings that I could get these. After I graduated from SAIACS in April 2018, I went back to my small, struggling village called Chadong New Site to serve there as a youth coordinator, the only Sunday School Teacher, and also the choir director in the church. Many of my friends and family asked me then as to why I didn’t go to a city and teach in a Bible school and earn experience and earn more money. But in my mind, I was determined that I wanted to serve in my village because there was no one to look after a newly shifted village (our old village was submerged in the water by the construction of Mapithel Dam). I wanted to serve when I have the strength and when the spirits, hearts, and minds of the villagers are new and open to a new life. I was appointed as a paid staff for 1 year (6000 Rupees a month) (Jan 2019 to Jan 2020) but from Feb. 2020 to Feb. 2021 I was working voluntarily without any pay. But I thank God that I could serve them well.
Today I am finally in a place to get back to my studies and research. However, due to some unfortunate reasons that happened, I could not come up with the funding by myself. I have my parents back home in the village but they are not in a position to provide for me either, nor do I have any support from any organization and my small church. But now I am in an extraordinary position with the blessings of God to be able to go to PThU in the Netherlands.
VISION & GOAL
My Vision is to protect and help preserve the rich Naga culture and train others (esp. the youth) to communicate Christian Theology through preaching, teaching, and music.
So today, I am reaching out to you because I have run out of other options to pay for this God-given opportunity. Your sincere and generous contributions will help me fulfill this. I sincerely thank you with all of my heart for your contributions, your prayers, and your support. Please help me share my story through your networks, your friends, and your church. May God bless you and make His face shine upon you today and forevermore. I don't want to take your precious time off by writing too much, however, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUERIES OR WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT ME AND MY STORY, FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME, AS I WANT TO BE TRANSPARENT WITH THIS CAMPAIGN AND FUNDRAISING.
