Education Improvement Plan

Partnering together to better the lots of the African Child.

Providing quality education to children reflects the fact that every child is entitled to fundamental human rights and is to be treated with dignity. By, providing educational opportunities to children we work against the efforts to indoctrinate them into violent and destructive paths. An education is their best weapon against impoverishment, disease, early marriage, gang activities, and prostitution. When children are exposed to poverty, violence, abuse, and exploitation, those children are at risk for taking destructive life paths. Educated children stand a better chance of having opportunities for constructive and positive life paths.


Childhood education gives young people a chance to develop social awareness and is key to cross-cultural understanding.

Globally, the quality of education that children receive is affected to a very large degree by the supporting environment. Unfortunately, gaining a proper education is challenging for impoverished or underprivileged families in Africa. In many areas, specific training opportunities are limited or non-existent. Even in large cities, access to computer training is often out of reach for the average family.


Creating Opportunity through Educational Scholarship

Scholarships or sponsorships make it possible for bright young minds to stay in school. The funds help cover tuition, books, school supplies, uniforms and other school-related costs. By providing a scholarship to an African student, we offer a promise to the student that what they do in school has meaning, and they will have the reinforcement they need.


Scholarships allow for future educational planning, and continuous support. When a student receives a scholarship to attend school, s/he is less likely to drop out of school. When a student is offered consistent support, s/he has the confidence to thrive intellectually.


Develop Africa’s scholarship efforts contributes to the achievement of the SoulLifters Millennium goal - to ensure that children will complete primary schooling. It is an effective long-term investment to eradicating poverty.
