The Need

Education plays a vital role in helping underprivileged youth achieve their dreams, reduce their dependence on low paying menial jobs and prevents them from sinking in the abyss of unemployment.
Factors such as poverty, loss of parents especially the breadwinner,  prevents many youth from gaining access to education.

Unless an aid in form of scholarship is provided, their dreams of getting an education will be squashed.

What We Do

We provide scholarships for tertiary institutions, continuous mentoring and personal development trainings to indigent students to ensure they don’t drop-out of school or go through college with financial anxiety.

The criteria for awarding the scholarship includes meeting academic standards, being of exemplary character, demonstrating leadership qualities and a strong will to succeed.

The Impact

Through this impactful program we have provided tertiary institution scholarship for indigent Youth, giving them new hope to pursue their dreams without anxiety or financial burden.

We have produced graduates who are now gainfully employed and are also giving back to support the educational pursuits of other indigent Youth.

We also provide educational materials such as exercise books, text books, school bags, writing materials and so on to underserved Youth across public secondary schools who do not have the financial capacity to purchase these items.
