SCHOLARSHIPS

A fund has been established by Asante Africa Foundation in honor of the Late Mr. Fred Lesakale, Kenya Program Manager for Asante Africa.

Female students will be targeted due to the highly marginalized situations of girls in drought prone, nomadic regions. Subsequent four-year scholarships will be offered to any qualifying female student from this same region depending on the availability of funds. FIND OUT MORE 

Together, we’re growing the next generation of confident and empowered youth.

Join us and impact 1,000,000 lives by 2020
