Education has the power to change everything… Just imagine being born into East Africa where the average person earns $1.50 per day yet must pay up to $350 for one year of public high school or $2000 for one year of public university. So what happens if you are dedicated to create a better world but you are not born with the privilege to gain a higher level education? The answer is simple: Lack of opportunity equals the lack of ability to make changes that our world needs
Please help our East African students attend the May 2014 intake.
“Through education, we are dedicated to develop the potential in underprivileged East Africans who are committed to the sustainable development and natural conservation of Africa”.
