Brilliance and talent exist everywhere, but opportunities do not. Our model addresses the root cause of why African youth are not successful, creating an ecosystem of opportunity for them to excel. We connect disadvantaged rural youth to knowledge and opportunities, cultivating informed, resilient community leaders who address local challenges and become active participants in the global economy.
We assess our impact both quantitatively and qualitatively. Our impact is demonstrated in the data and in the stories.
Sustainability comes from ownership. Asante Africa Foundation works within the existing educational system, alongside educators, influencers and governments. Our local staff partner with existing schools and visionaries to create change. Our low-cost models and local ownership coupled with results of increased girl safety, school retention, improved performance and income generation creates the local desire to do more.

For brilliant young students that don’t have the means to pay for school, scholarships are crucial. It spells the difference between staying at home, and being given access to quality education that leads to improved circumstances and future successes.
Our university scholarship is a competitive program independently managed. A student is eligible if they graduate high school/A Level with distinctions (top 5% in the country) and are recognized by the government.
Once accepted for a university scholarship, the student enters into a three way contract with their guardian and Asante Africa Foundation. Only Asante Africa scholars are eligible.
Our secondary scholarships are for 9th – 12th grade (and 2 additional A level years if student qualifies academically) who are talented, smart and disadvantaged youth.
We ask parents or guardians to assume responsibility for medical costs, and family emergency costs, and visiting their students frequently while at school.
Our primary scholarships are for 4th – 8th grade students who without support, would not attend school.
As a scholarship donor you assist in covering the all costs associated with school fees which include: food, school materials, uniforms, personal items, boarding, and transportation.
Scholarships are funding opportunities for students that meet specific criteria. It includes meeting academic standards, acceptable behavior in school, and ongoing family engagement to ensure a student’s best possible results.
