We aim to assist under-privileged children and young adults who wish to pursue their studies at the tertiary level. These are often students aged 18 and above who have completed primary and secondary school. These individuals usually do not continue to the tertiary phase of their education as they lack the financial means, or need to start work to support their families.

What binds us together is the mission to bring education to the truly needy. We believe – as you all do – that education is fundamental to the development, growth and overall wellness of the individual, the welfare of society, the wealth of nations, and the well being of humanity as a whole.

What Is Our Goal and Why Are We Here?

Education has the power to change lives. It is fundamental to personal development and societal growth. Yet many children and young adults in poor communities lack resources to seek proper education. We help underprivileged children and young adults get a formal education, through the financial support of individuals and corporations. We also help match our students with mentors from the corporate world.

We believe education can pull an entire generation out of poverty, and that when we provide a scholarship to one student, the trickle-down effect is life-changing for their family and their direct community.


The privilege of having a university education is a gift that changed everything for my family – starting with my father.

It doesn’t take much to change a life, Get in touch today and start making the difference.
