These Numbers Have Faces

Every student has the power to build a hopeful future. We invest in Africa's brightest youth to lead and empower their countries. While media statistics often paint a negative picture of Africa, we see Africa as full of life and color, light and opportunity. We believe there are people behind the statistics. A number is difficult to connect with, but when we see those numbers as real people, we find a purpose that compels us to action.
