THE STORY:

One of our Imagine Scholar students, Jabulane, recently got into the African Leadership Academy! Let me re-phrase that - HE GOT INTO THE AFRICAN LEADERSHIP ACADEMY, THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS AFRICAN SECONDARY SCHOOL IN THE CONTINENT. They take 100 students a year from over 4000 applicants, most students coming from private school educations in Nigeria, Ghana, and Kenya. They on average only take about 10-15 students from South Africa a year, and he is one of them! He is the first ever from the Nkomazi, and quite possibly the first from the entire province of Mpumalanga.

This is an incredible testament to his drive, vision and brilliance - and he's only 16! We are incredibly sad to see him go, as he'll be moving to Johannesburg for the academy, but he will always be a part of the Imagine Scholar family. We cannot wait to see where his journey in life takes him.

That all being said, Jabulane received a $50,000 USD scholarship to attend the academy. His family is still required to pay about $600 a year towards his tuition. For a family that makes barely more than that in a year, it is an expense they cannot bear. Thus, please join me in congratulating Jabulane on his incredibly noteworthy achievement by contributing to this fundraiser. All funds raised will go towards the tuition costs his family is supposed to bear. Every dollar helps! Please support this stunning young man!

I send this in tribute to the promise of this young man and in memory of my husband who would have celebrated his birthday. I think he would very much approve of Jabulane! 4 years ago
