Parents are not only the first educator and financial provider in education. They also serves as an inspiration. It is a parent's dream to see their children graduate and have a college degree. However, not all parents can support their children's education all the way to college. For less fortunate families where parents can only support their children up to primary and secondary level of education, children look for ways to continue their studies. Some students are working while studying, some applies for scholarships in Universities. Children wants to finish their studies for their parents.
