Providing children with merit-based and need-based scholarships.

Our merit-based and need-based scholarships provide low-income families from rural East Africa an opportunity for their children to receive financial aid, student support, and quality education. This allows motivated students to access higher quality education.

Our exceptional students must meet certain standards to receive a scholarship. The criteria includes academic achievementgood 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 staff and community.
