ARO EEP Scholarship fund

The ARO Emergency Education Program scholarship fund is a privately funded tuition assistance program, initiated to remove barriers inherent in poverty and to provide hope and opportunities for a better quality of life through education to promising underprivileged children with express interest in education.

This project expands educational opportunities by proving scholarships to families in need so their children can attend the schools that best meet their needs, regardless of their financial inability or geographical location. We also support scholarship programs and reform efforts that help all children get the education they deserve.

The AROEEP scholarship fund works to ensure that all students, notwithstanding their socioeconomic background, are accorded the chance to realise their full potential. This project leads service schemes to ensure that bright children in poverty-stricken areas have the opportunity to receive proper education. Just one scholarship can mean generations of financial stability and success for a child and his family. Children, when given the opportunity, can effect dramatic positive changes to the society, molding the future from mediocrity to excellence.

THE ISSUE

Statistics show that Nearly 30 million children living in sub-Saharan Africa are out of school as a result of numerous adverse circumstances, where 22% have never attended primary school or have left school without completing primary education; this is more than one child over five.

 

 

New data analysis also show that aid to basic education has decreased significantly over the years. In addition, funds are not directed to the regions and countries most in need. Basic education aid in Sub-Saharan Africa has decreased by 7%, even though more than half of out of school children are living in Sub-Saharan Africa.

GOALS

  • To ensure all children have access to equal educational opportunities.
  • To enable children reach their maximum potential through education, notwithstanding financial challenges.
  • To generate funds to send and sustain more bright African children in schools.
  • To significantly reduce the number of out of school children living in Africa.
