Complex societal challenges are preventing many children attaining education. Many of them suffer from low income, low financial literacy, and high debt levels. Financial hardship and complex societal challenges directly influence a person's cognitive ability. Sam Onyemaechi Humanitarian foundation supports vulnerable and underserved children by providing partial and complete tuition fees, learning materials to overcome some challenges on a need and merit basis.
Many challenges are facing children of low income families. They are far behind as compared to other West African countries for several reasons, including overage enrollment in primary schools, many out-of-school due to lack of support and finances, limited access to resources, and poverty. Most children in rural communities in developing countries are further behind: they are 2.5 times more likely to be out of school. Providing access to education is a must.
This project will help to make Sammy's dreams a reality by helping him with his tuition fees. This scholarship fund aims to help Sammy (depending on the amount raised) attend University in USA. For many of the future graduates, the next step is attending University. However, this can be difficult mainly due to the lack of monetary resources. The project will support this boy by granting scholarships based on need, merit, and admittance to University.
The potential long-term impact of financial aid can influence students' postsecondary decisions. As such, the goal of this project will improve college access and affordability and help to actualize their potentials and dreams and to be resourceful to the family, society, and nation at large.
