Nine months, whether it is a lot or a little, all depends from which perspective you look at it. In order for one’s life to turn 180 degrees, it sounds like a rather short time. The problem is that in order to change one’s standard of living, it is imperative to invest in considerable resources: time, money and effort.
Education is one of the tools that helps us improve the quality of life, but at the same time it requires certain expenses. It's not just about the cost of the training itself: students do not have the opportunity to fully work, at best, part-time. Having a family and children and student expenses will always exceed one’s monthly income.
Taking out a loan? Well the issue is that he decided to go study in order to get a better position and climb out of debt. Why? To end it once and for all. Please do not rush to judge, he pushed off this question precisely because he was afraid of what is happening now…
And yet, the desire to change outweighed all else, and he decided to become a student for 3 years. At the moment, the man has already learned more than 2 years as a dental hygienist (the profession is extremely in demand in his district), until the end of his studies there are 9 months left - to postpone his studies, would mean to postpone the achievement of the goal and not really make any progress, which accordingly, will further aggravate an already difficult situation.
The other thing is, taking care of the family's food at the moment, lies entirely on the shoulders of the husband. His wife, having experienced a severe miscarriage, where she almost died herself is working with a psychologist. Then the family decided to try to have a child again. Thank G-d, the last pregnancy ended in childbirth, but throughout this period the wife was overcome by fear and panic attacks. Of course, the couple realized that they rushed into things to quickly and they were not ready for this, but, as you understand, there was nowhere to retreat. In addition to the psychological problems (the wife goes to see a specialist and takes antidepressants, which leads to additional costs), the consequences are also postponed because of physical health.
The man studies 3 times a week, works on a compound the other days and after school hours.
At the moment, until graduation, the family lacks 3,000 shekels per month.
During the past week, the family was given an ultimatum to leave the rented apartment (they did not argue, the owner is of advanced age, so as not to worry once again). Moving - an additional cost of 2000 shekels.
Accumulated debt to the landlord with building fees is 8000 NIS.
The husband is also interested in helping his wife with disability registration, since he does not have the opportunity to deal with this issue on his own (physically, there is not enough time to delve into and engage in bureaucratic red tape).
Getting the disability permit for the wife and having a profession, the family will not only get out of debt, but also raise their standard of living. Subsequently, fully standing on their feet, this family will also undertake to support our “education” project in the future, in order to help other people change their quality of life!
3000 NIS x 9 months = 27,000 shekels (monthly support)
8000 NIS – accumulated debt to landlord
2000 NIS – help with the move
Total: NIS 37,000
