ABOUT OUR FAMILY:
My name is Srinivas Akkapalli. My wife's name is Santha Kumari Akkapalli. We live in Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh. We have 3 children - 2 sons & 1 daughter. Our eldest child, elder of the two sons, Abhishek Goud Akkapalli, has a very good talent in academia.
Abhishek Goud has continued his education up to Class XII despite our financial crisis. He scored 97% (970/1000) marks in Class XII. My health is not at all fine and for that reason, I'm unable to work. My wife goes to a daily wage work at a restaurant but the wages are very low and the job is not guaranteed (very unstable). As a result, we're not able to afford for our children's education, especially our son Abhishek Goud's higher education.
After Class XII, our son has a strong desire to go to B.Tech and continue up to M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering. But we have no hope of getting him his desired education unless some kind-hearted donors help us.
MY SON'S STORY:
Abhishek went to a nearby school named Vigyana Bharati where he completed his Kindergarten. After that, due to financial crisis, we had to move to other cities in search of jobs and couldn't find a good one. In that process, we couldn't join him in a school and a few years of his childhood were wasted with no proper education. Next, we joined him in a nearby government elementary school where he studied Class I and after that, we directly joined him in Class III to cover the loss. He studied Class III in Amalapuram under the guardianship of a friend of mine. After that, he came back to Kakinada where we joined him in a nearby Government High School. We joined him directly in Class VI. He continued to Class X in that school. He scored 9.3/10 GPA in Class X and stood as one of the toppers in the school. After that, we joined him in a nearby private junior college named Ravi Junior College where he completed Class XII with 97% marks and stood as the college topper. In his Class XI, he scored 464/470 marks and stood as the college topper and at State 4th Rank. To complete his Class XII, we had to get help from some donors online in a fundraiser. Thankfully, he could complete his Class XII with a high distinction, especially because of the help we received from some benevolent donors.
But after Class XII, he wants to pursue a career in Research New generation of Mechanical Engineering by taking B.Tech, M.Tech and continue to Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering. It is a virtually impossible task for us to get him his desired education with our current financial condition. We are hoping that God will help us with in the form of some kind-hearted donors.
We can't even pay Engineering tution fee in the Engineering college for four years. We need at this moment £10,000 for Engineering College tution fee, Hostel maintenance and for books etc... And also need up to another £10,000 for further studies. I hope someone helps my son financially & helps him to reach his goal. Thank you!
