This monthly amount puts a deserving child in school for one year. More importantly, it provides a child the opportunity to achieve their dreams.
In 2010-2011 Asante Africa Foundation funded over 153 scholarships in Kenya and Tanzania. Asante Africa Foundation’s merit-based scholarships are awarded based on academic excellence as well as financial need. This means that the best and the brightest students who would otherwise miss the opportunity to nurture their dreams in the classroom, will be given the chance to realize their potential.
Of our existing student population, 60% of students are girls who need a chance at education, not an early marriage. At least 67% of our students are orphaned with teenage siblings or grandparents as their guardians. 100% of these children have brothers, sisters and other family members depending on them to succeed.
As we move into a new school year, we are asking for your support to provide a scholarship. A scholarship will guarantee that a deserving student begins the new school year in January 2012 with the support and resources they need to succeed.
The 2011-2012 cost of an annual scholarship is $750 ($63 a month):
A scholarship covers the expense of textbooks, exam fees, tuition, boarding with meals, and personal items such as uniforms, shoes, and study aids.
As Asante Africa Foundation continue to meet our goals and set the bar for growth, our student scholarships play a significant role in creating a positive avenue for change and opportunity. That is why nearly half of our general donations go toward scholarship funding.
For $63 a month, YOU can help US give CHILDREN the opportunity to create a brighter future for themselves, their families and their communities. Fuel the potential that will resonate beyond the walls of the classroom.
