The same people who designed the mentoring program all agreed education is a key component to breaking the cycle of poverty. They also saw in their community, the challenge facing middle school, high school and college students. So many in this age range dropped out because they couldn’t afford the tuition, their families did not support them, and the general culture of the community. The mentors designed the Scholarship Program to be a next step of the Mentoring Program. That the families would see the value of education, the value of supporting their students and then take advantage of the opportunities given.
10 middle school, high school and college aged students received scholarships for the school year starting January 2018
