Challenge

This program provides opportunity to deserving students who otherwise would not have the financial means nor the mentorship to pursue a college education. Support is provided through funding to cover all costs related to the students' education and as mentorship, moral support and guidance by the program founder and the local program coordinator.

Solution

Funds cover tuition, books, school supplies, and other costs related to the student's education (this may include transportation, meals, clothes, etc). Detailed expense reports and students' progress are communicated to donors quarterly.

Long-Term Impact

VisionAR will give low-income youth the opportunity to have a college education and a career that will impact their lives, with the opportunity to influence their families and communities. 2008 = 4 scholarships; 2009 = 5 scholarships; 2015: 12 scholarships plus 4 students already graduated!
