We are extremely proud of our scholars who graduate thanks to our donors and forge incredible careers for themselves. All these young people need is a chance. They’ve done the hard work, the study, the assignments, research and hours of revision. They are smart, gifted and driven beyond belief. The last barrier they have to overcome is financial and this is not something that can come from them or their families. They are dependent on external funding, on our supporters and benefactors, to make a contribution. Then, the sky is the limit.

I am extremely blessed to be awarded this scholarship award. Thank you for believing in me and supporting my dreams. You have inspired me to do philanthropic deeds in the future and be an active member in my community. Your support will help alleviate my financial worries as I take on this next chapter in my life.
