The National Scholarship Program (NSP) is the flagship initiative for the GVI Charitable Trust. Donations to this project provide disadvantaged youths globally with the tools and skills to realize their potential. Working with international organisations focusing on global issues on a local scale, we offer mentoring and training for young people to increases their awareness of possibilities, participation in social change and increase employment rates in youths around the world.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
NSP projects provide opportunities for students and adults in the regions where we work to receive support and access to education, training and opportunities that may lead to long term improvements for them, their local community and environment.
How will this project solve this problem?
Scholarships we have awarded so far awarded include, but are not limited to; primary and secondary education for 4000 school children each year, additional monthly tuition of around 2000 students, higher education opportunities and teacher training courses, conservation and research training and experience and training and opportunities in sustainable alternative livelihoods We aim to expand this program and offer opportunities to a greater number of local children and adults.
