Student Scholarship Program

Sponsor a Student. Change a Life. 

The majority of youth in the Afar community, notwithstanding various social and economic challenges, can make a very critical contribution to addressing the plight of our people in the diaspora and within the Afar Triangle. And education can play a major role in addressing those issues. Today across the Afar Triangle access to quality educated for the Afar is limited do to families financial troubles and the government’s neglect of the Afar people. 

We look forward to establishing Student Scholarship Program. Each year we will sponsor 3 students through their tertiary education. 

The objectives for this project are:

  • Providing equal access for the opportunity to a tertiary education
  • Eliminating gender disparities and provide equal opportunity to women and men to a tertiary education, with a focus on rural populations and poor urban youth
  • Strengthen the skilled human resources of the Afar by building the capacity of its youth across the Afar Triangle
