Hands for Africa is pleased to grant 40 students a scholarship for the 2011-2012 (and beyond) school year. In December 2011, Alton Harding travelled to Sierra Leone and met with a number of students to symbolically deliver the educational scholarship certificate. The scholarship is designed to cover tuition, books, supplies, uniforms, school meals, and transportation. By accepting the receipt of scholarship funds, the students agreed to enroll as full-time students at an educational institution and to attend classes and complete courses required by the educational institution. They also agreed to maintain the minimum grade-point average of C+ and to work to maintain such average.
We are pleased that we were able to sponsor such a significant number of students and hope for further support from our donors to be able to provide even more children with scholarships that will allow them to receive basic and post primary education, build and support their own livelihoods, and gain self-reliance and independence.
