BENEFITING: Imagine Scholar Inc
Imagine Scholar is an educational non-profit organization, based in the rural Nkomazi Region of South Africa. We work with around 50, highly motivated students, grades 8-12 after school six days a week. At Imagine Scholar, we focus on improving english proficiency and critical thinking skills, as well as leadership and community engagement. All of these core ideas are working towards the larger goal of not only attending university level schooling but thriving in the environment. Every Imagine Scholar student believes that education is the key to their future and will allow them to one day return and help their community. They each hold the goal to attend university and a critical step in this process is to visit a campus for the first time. Many of these students have never had the chance to leave the area, so the opportunity to visit schools in Johannesburg and Pretoria is especially motivating.
