Salifu comes from a poor family, but thanks to the previous support we've been able to provide him, he is among the first set of 3 from his village that has been able to proceed this far with his education. He is currently in his final year of Senior Secondary School (SSS 4) and wants to go to college to become an Economist. Project funds will cover his end of school exam fees, books, and other expenses as Salifu completes school.
Salifu's parents cannot cover any of the costs associated with school because as peasant farmers there is not enough to cover the basic needs much less school. Salifu has worked very hard to get to the final year of his basic education and needs help to cover his end of school exam fees, books, and other expenses.
Project funds will cover his end of school exam fees, books, and other expenses as Salifu completes school and prepares to go to college to become an economist.
The project is an effective long-term investment that will help provide quality educational opportunities for more youths and young adults so that they can rise above poverty and become better decision makers. The principal economic advantage of this education project is that it will produce people who are capable of making a greater contribution to the national economy. These future leaders' incremental earnings represent the added social output generated by investment in their education.
