Hi Im trying to raise funds to do a Teacher Refresher course so I can return to work. I am a solo parent with 3 boys. WINZ, Bank won't help
Last year I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Now that I have finished treatment I want to return to my career as a Teacher. However now my registration to teach will expire in October unless I participate in a Teacher Refresher Course that's costs $4000. Work and Income have declined to help.I have applied for a bank loan declined because I'm not working. Studylink will not fund the course. All I want to do is go back to work to support my 3 boys and not live on the benefit. I have no savings as i have been on a sickness benefit the past year for Breast Cancer. If there is anyone out there that can help me to get back to my life I would really appreciate it.
Pay for Teacher Refresher Course to renew teaching licence.

Hi I'm a Single Parent with 3 boys aged 14,9,8. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer October 2016. At the time of diagnosis I was working at a school. Now that I have finished my treatment i want to go back to Teaching. However the Ministry of Education have said that I have to do a Teacher Education Refresher course costing $4000 to keep my Teaching Registrstion. As a single parent on a sickness benefit for the last year I do not have these funds or means to pay the course fees. Work and Income have said they can not help me and Banks won't lend me the funds because I am not working. I really want to go back to work as I love teaching children and I want to provide a stable future for my children.
Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Kelli Somerville.
