We know our work is making a difference.
‘My mentor has helped me develop more self-confidence and allowed me not to settle for a life less than what I am capable of. He has listened to me and instead of feeling sympathetic about what has happened in my life, he has helped me use it as motivation.’ – Scholar

‘The scholarship brought ambition and drive to myself – but mostly to my younger siblings, especially my little sister. It’s been one of the most motivating aspects of this experience which has pushed me more.’ – Scholar

Since 2013 we have awarded 183 scholarships.

With your help we can continue to reach more and more students.
