What we at Asante Africa Foundation know is that every parent loves their child, and every child has big dreams. The struggle for many families in East Africa is that the typical household lives on less than $2 a day with an average family size of 6-8 members, making it nearly impossible for families to cover the costs of sending and keeping their children in school.
For a bit less than $3 per day, we provide educational support for families that includes merit-based scholarships, school and exam fees, uniforms and personal supplies, boarding, food and learning materials. This basic support allows motivated students to immediately access higher quality education and set them on a track for success.
Asante Africa Foundation partners with local community leaders and educators to identify girls and boys who are gifted, eager to learn and financially challenged. We work to achieve sustainable impact on these communities by finding and funding hard-working students from rural areas.
