For less than $3/day, your merit based scholarships donation provides low income families from rural East Africa an opportunity for their youth to receive financial aid, student support, and quality education. This allows motivated students to immediately access higher quality education.
This year we have 46 students still waiting for their chance to learn!
At Asante Africa Foundation we believe that every child has the right to learn grow and succeed in today’s society. In rural East Africa, parents often give boys a priority when it comes to sending a child to school. Our scholarships, given to both boys and girls, provide equal opportunity for rural youth to receive a quality education, giving them a shot at their dreams!
WE PROVIDE SCHOLARSHIPS, NOT SPONSORSHIPS
Our students must meet certain standards to receive a scholarship. The criteria includes academic achievement, good behavior while in school, and ongoing family engagement. By creating expectations, we ensure accountability for the student and offer shared responsibility and support between Asante Africa Foundation staff and community.
- 1 year of tuition (including exam fees)
- Room and board fees
- Learning materials, uniforms, and sanitary products for girls
* All contributions to the Asante Africa Scholarship Program are fully tax-deductible. All donors who provide a full scholarship ($750+) will receive scholarship reports, student updates, and personalized letters.
“I did better on my exams because I realized that education is the only thing that I can depend on, otherwise I would have been married at a very young age.”
“I was doing cattle shepherding at a very young age and school was not an option. Asante Africa changed that by supporting my education. They taught me how to map my dreams, and since then my dream is to become an engineer. Today I am applying to university for a degree in engineering.”
“I can’t believe that I am almost where I wanted to be. Asante Africa has enlighten my life. Since they started supporting me, I became someone different. Without all the support from Asante Africa I would have been married years ago”
